“Back to the Future” — a 1980s classic starring Michael J. Fox — is being shown Friday at the Manteca Golf Course.

It is part of the free Movies in the Park series  being offered this summer by the Manteca Parks & Recreation Department.

Admission to all of the movies is free. The movie starts at dusk at the golf course on North Union Road just north of Center Street.

You are encouraged to bring lawn chairs for the movie that will be shown in one of the most stunning settings in Manteca. 

You will not be allowed to bring food or drink to the Friday, June 15, movie. The golf course snack bar, however, will be open.

The “Back to the Future” trilogy has ties to the 209. “Back to the Future III” has scenes that were shot at Railtown 1897 in Jamestown where you can see the actual locomotive used — the Sierra Railroad No. 3 steam engine that has been in service since 1891.

Two more free movie nights are planned for Northgate Park off of Northgate Drive.

On Friday, July 27, “the Sandlot” will be shown. The Friday, Aug. 10, movie is “The Goonies.”

Both movies will also feature food trucks, vendor, and other activities.
