'Back to the Future' to Receive Live Orchestral Screenings for 30th Anniversary
Following in a year of Ghostbusters 30th anniversary celebrations, classic sci-fi comedy caper Back to the Future also turns 30 next year, and to celebrate, the 1985 flick will be screened with a live orchestra performing Alan Silvestri's score.

Presented by IMG Artists and the Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency in partnership with Universal Pictures, it will premiere in Lucerne, Switzerland, in May 2015. The performance is expected to tour around the world, although further locations haven't yet been announced.

The score has been edited out of the film so that the orchestra can perform the music live. Sweetening the deal even further, the score will include around 15 minutes of extra material. This has been prepped by Silvestri especially for this occasion.

The only way this could possibly get any better would be if Huey Lewis and the News showed up to perform "The Power of Love" live, but that doesn't seem to be on the cards for this production.

In related news, a musical version of Back to the Future is expected to come to London's West End in 2015.
