Written by

The Chicago Symphony Orchestra is celebrating the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future with a March 4 screening featuring the CSO performing the movie's score live. And at the after-party in the Symphony Center rotunda, you can take a selfie with an authentic DeLorean.

The iconic car with the gull-wing doors will be on loan from its owner, who also happens to be one of the orchestra's trumpet players. The after-party, hosted by the CSO's Overture Council young professionals' group, will also feature hors d'oeuvres, an open bar with movie-inspired cocktails, live music and a raffle. You're encouraged to dress in Back to the Future–inspired attire, so put together your best Marty, Biff or Doc Brown ensemble.

Admission to the after-party is separate from the concert, and runs $65 through Sunday; the price increases to $85 on Monday. Concert tickets start at $60.
