Great job Wednesday’s Child and Cale (@POOL108)!!

The following is from Futurepedia (a Back to the Future Wiki page):

Twin Pines Mall, later known as Lone Pine Mall, was the location that Doc Emmett L. Brown chose to show Marty McFly the new DeLorean time machine he invented.

At 1:21 a.m. on October 26, 1985, Doc’s dog, Einstein, becomes the world’s first time traveler leaving behind a pair of fire trails after the DeLorean accelerated to the necessary 88 miles per hour.

During the experiment, Doc became nostalgic and remembered that Old Man Peabody used to own the land on which the mall sat in 1985. He noted that Peabody bred pine trees as a hobby.

When Marty traveled to 1955, he accidentally ran over one of a pair of pine trees in Peabody’s front yard. When Marty returned to 1985, there was only one pine tree at the front of the mall and as a result the mall’s name was changed to Lone Pine Mall.

This was also an important location because it was
Lone Pine Mall where Doc was shot by Libyan terrorists until Marty gave him the letter forewarning of it.

Here is the movie trailer for Back to the Future:

Last Question: What movie is this from?

Answer: D.C. Cab

This was one of my favorite movies that constantly aired on HBO back in the day. It starred Mr. T, Adam Baldwin (from My Bodyguard, and more recently, the television show Chuck), Gary Busey, Bill Maher, and Paul Rodriguez. And Irene Cara made a cameo, and provided this song (which long-time readers of this blog know that I love):

And here is the trailer for the movie:
