Beginning on Oct. 20, select NYC Ferry boats will bear “Back to the Future” branding. The interiors of these vessels will remain wrapped in “Back to the Future” through Nov. 17. Special pop-up moments will take place aboard ferries on Oct. 20 to mark the launch.

Riders along the East River route of the NYC Ferry can expect a ticket giveaway, trivia and cast appearances throughout the day.

Based on the movie of the same name, “Back to the Future” features a book by Bob Gale with a score by Alan Silvestri and Glen Ballard. 

“Back to the Future” opened at the Winter Garden Theatre on Aug. 3, 2023 and is produced by Colin Ingram.
