Editor’s Note: this text is from the old version of BTTF tour – we’re going to be revising these articles in the coming days. The photos and screenshots from these articles will all be down below for the time being, instead of thumbnails within the text. Thanks for your patience, and visit us again when everything’s tidied up!
This location is on a public street in a Public Park, go and check it out!
You have to love Doc for taking the time to spell out START HERE in giant, painted block letters where Marty needs to revv up the Delorean for the finale of Back to the Future part 1. Between Doc’s calculations and Marty’s headbanging skills, they get the motor going right here, to send him BACK TO THE FUTURE!
This is, perhaps, not the most thrilling location for someone who hasn’t seen the film in awhile or the casual BTTF fan, but for us Die-Hards, standing in the same spot that Marty attached the hook and zoomed off headed back toward the future gives us a high that others may not quite get. This location is just inside of Griffith park, on the road to the observatory, across the street and just north of the Greek Theatre! More details on this location soon, but you can find the exact spot via the photos below!
The Map/Directions above give you directions to the greek theatre. Look for a spot just north of there along the east side of the street! Take a printout of these pictures with you!.
I have a LOT of photos of this location from over the years. It doesn’t change much. You may think they don’t match the screenshot, but trust me – this is the right spot, and these photos are going to help you find it quite easily.
