Back To The Future’s Clock Tower: Where Have We Seen This Before?
Hill Valley, California. Home to Marty McFly, Doc Brown, the DeLorean and the famous downtown Clock Tower. It was exactly 10:04pm in 1955 that a lightning bolt of 1.21 jigowatts hit the clock tower, channeled to the time machine, and sent Marty ‘Back to the Future’.
Sadly, none of us can visit the fine folks of Hill Valley, but we can go the spot of the clock tower which is located on the back lot of Universal Studios in Hollywood, California.
Back to the Future made ‘Courthouse Square’ a star, as much as it did Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd, but did you know that it’s been in many more movies even before the classic 1985 film.
Here is a partial list of movies where you can find the iconic Courthouse:
To Kill A Mockingbird (1962)
Bye Bye Birdie (1963)
The Nutty Professor (1996)
Batman & Robin (1997)
Bruce Almighty (2003)
