2. PRINT RELEASE - Their next Logan Theatre print release is coming up! They've got a Back to the Future print by Suburban Avenger which will be available at the VIP release of the print on opening night of the screening. We'll be there starting at 9PM at The Logan Theatre on Tuesday, November 28th. The print goes online on on Wednesday, November 29th at 2PM.

Here's a bit from the artist about working on the print:

"I feel like Back to the Future is one of those movies where there's a ton of posters for it, but they all center around similar themes of Hill Valley or the Delorean or Marty or Doc or the film's other frequent elements. Which I mean rightly so, they're all great parts of the movie. But going into this gig, I knew from the start exactly what I wanted to portray. I remember the first time I saw BTTF, I literally couldn't get Johnny B. Goode out of my head for the next two weeks. I felt like that scene so well captured the tone of the movie as a whole, and I knew from the very start I wanted to do something with Marty and that gorgeous Gibson ES-345. Incorporating the Delorean was a very last minute touch, but I feel that it drastically changes the piece and adds in that clever little element." - Luke Martin of Suburban Avenger Studios
