“- Then tell me, future boy, who’s President of the United States in 1985?

– Ronald Reagan.

Doc Emmett Brown and Marty McFly

In 1985, Marty visited Doc Emmett Brown in a small garage next to a Burger King (535 North Victory Boulevard, Burbank). During the opening scene, a press clipping of the Burning Brown Manor is vaguely seen.

When the young man arrives in 1955 and has the reflex to look for his scientific friend, Marty has a strange surprise. The garage was actually attached to the so-called manor house, a splendid mansion.

It is in the toilets of this residence that Doc has the idea of the temporal convector. The scientist uses the garage as a laboratory for his experiments.

In the first installment, Marty rings the doorbell and Doc takes him for a canvasser, and then in the third, they rest there after a hectic night.

1986

Back to the Future was one of Ronald Reagan’s favorite movies. When he heard the cult line about the incumbent president in 1985 he laughed so loudly that he asked the projectionist to rewind so that he could see the part of the film he had missed. In 1986, the 40th President of the United States even quoted Doc in his State of the Union Address, repeating the famous “Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.”.
