As we’ve mentioned before, The Movie Gang are a Franklin-based group of friends and movie buffs, founded a year and a half ago and featuring New Found Glory’s Chad Gilbert, who periodically host screenings of cult classic films at the historic Franklin Theatre. Among their selections, the group have showed favorites like like Mean Girls, Karate Kid, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, The Goonies, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Wayne’s World, always making things an event and encouraging participation with special contests, raffles, local food and drink, photo ops, and, once, even an acoustic New Found Glory show.
Tonight, June 17, the Gang return with a presentation of one of our all-time favorites: Back to the Future, and, as if that wasn’t enough to get us stoked, they’ve invited our pals at Nashville Is The Reason Along to DJ an ’80s themed dance party after the movie. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the movie starts at 7:30 p.m. sharp. Per usual, there are plenty of perks, including free hoverboard enamel pins for the first 50 people, free fruit punch provided by Franklin’s own Juice Bar, prizes for best dressed, best dancer, and more. The dance begins at 9:30 p.m., immediately following the screening.
Spots are extremely limited, and if you don’t managed to snag a ticket, a limited number of dance-only tickets will also be available the theater.
