The “Back To The Future” franchise is coded with references to the 911 terrorist attacks in NY
It starts with a scene from the movie where the main characters are at the “Twin Pines” mall, a reference to the (Twin Towers). Also, note that the clock on the sign is “911″ (upside down)
The camera also pans in on the timepieces for both main characters and shows additional 911 references.
The scene is then introduced to a sudden terrorist attack by two Muslim extremists. The two attackers successfully kill the target (two successful plane crashes on 911)
The main character then travels back in time to save the doc from being killed by terrorists. In the frame is a very odd 911 visual between the auto store sign (left) and the two fire tire tracks on the ground.
The main character returns to the mall right after the two terrorists complete a successful attack. The mall sign now reads, “Lone Pine” mall, (Single Tower). Since the pines represent the towers then the single pine represents the now “One World Tower“, (One World Trade Center).
This particular change is very interesting since I didn’t see any tie into the plot of the movie for why the signs changed. It was also done so quickly that you could easily miss it.
The next scenes are more direct and focus on the twin pine – twin tower analogy. In a scene, in the main characters home, we see them watching a screen where twin pines are showing. Then the image scrolls to the twin towers.
There is no reason for the twin towers to be in the movie.
You can also see the tip of the statue of Liberty sitting on the table.
If you are looking from the perspective of the character in the scene who is hanging upside down, then you will see the twin towers falling rather than scrolling up. (crashing symbolism).
Also, keep in mind that the major subplot of the movie is to save the “Tower”. There is a recurring warning to save the tower throughout the movie. It has to be saved because it will be struck.
Watch this video to get a first-hand understanding of the connections being made, it’s very interesting. At the end of the video the author had an idea as to why these connections were happening, (I’m not convinced), but his reasoning is interesting.
The director also made another movie called “The Walk”, that tied this all together. The movie placed a time line of 30 years on a focus of the twin towers to direct our understanding back to the precognitive understanding of the 911 event.
The movie shows the main character symbolized in both movies imaged in two scenes focused on the same event related to the Twin Towers.
