That 80s Time Travel Movie, Brisbane Arts Theatre

The Brisbane Arts Theatre is putting on a parody musical called “That 80s Time Travel Movie” and I’ll give you one guess what it’s about. Naturally, my DeLorean was there for the Australian premiere! I thought it was pretty good; I love seeing new spins on the existing content and not just straight quoting or re-telling. Here’s a couple photos I took on opening night.

I managed to swing behind-the-scenes access to the replica prop DeLorean they made. It’s a welded steel frame on wheels that has some additional wooden support bracing with painted corflute for the body panels. Given the very limited time & budget they had, they did a decent job!

The gullwing doors do actually open! You just have to be very careful when handling them. Apparently they caused a lot of problems for the set builders… If only they knew how much trouble they caused DMC, heh

The prop DeLorean divides into three pieces they can separate & wheel around individually. The people I spoke to weren’t aware that they actually did something very similar to this when filming Back to the Future – they had an “exploded” DeLorean they built with multiple layers to make filming internal scenes easier. Because there’s no easy way to physically fit Doc, Marty, Jennifer AND Einstein all in an actual DeLorean at the same time

You don’t really see this level of detail from the audience, but the prop DeLorean does have a rough Flux Capacitor (made from flashing EL wire) with some random components on top

“That 80s Time Travel Movie” is showing at the Brisbane Arts Theatre from now until the 27th of March. Book your tickets at https://www.artstheatre.com.au/backtothefuture.
