New York, NY – Great Scott! P!Q, NYC’s premiere retailer of unique gifts for all ages, will be hosting an event so heavy it’s been 30 years in the making.
Welcome to the Future is a P!Q produced one-night event on October 15th, 2015, at P!Q’s retail location at Rockefeller Center. During the evening, the largest collection of Back to the Future products in NYC will be available for sale and a custom five foot long, flying model DeLorean will be unveiled in the store window.
Special guests, actors James Tolkan (Principal Strickland) and Donald Fullilove (Mayor “Goldie” Wilson) will be in attendance for photos and autographs between 5pm-midnight.
Welcome to the Future is the culmination of three milestones happening at once. Besides being the 30th Anniversary of the release of Back to the Future, October 21, 2015, is the actual date in Back to the Future, Part II that Marty and Doc travel to the future. Additionally, directly across from P!Q, Radio City Music Hall is having a special two night screening of the original Back to the Future movie with a symphony orchestra playing the score live on October 15-16th.
“We’re excited to present Welcome to the Future to honor one of the best movies of all time during this monumental time,” says President Alan Ceppos. “Personally, as a fan, I can’t wait to unveil our 5’ DeLorean and meet Mayor “Goldie” Wilson and Principal Strickland for myself.”
Welcome to the Future will happen on October 15th from 5:00pm-midnight at P!Q Rockefeller Center, 74 West 50th Street.
