Courthouse Square in 1985

1985 was a year in the 20th century. It was present day to Marty McFly before he transported back to 1955, and it was his intended destination in which to return.

By 1985, Hill Valley had experienced growth in its surrounding neighborhoods and suburbs. Downtown was less vibrant as commercial interests moved out around the Twin Pines Mall area, on the former site of Twin Pines Ranch, as well as former residential areas of town (see John F. Kennedy Drive). A community known as Hilldale was beginning construction.

By 1985 there was an increase in civil rights, cutural upheval and usage of electronic computing

After Biff Tannen disrupted history, this year became the alternate 1985.

      The DeLorean's time circuits as they appeared one minute after the first demonstration.

      From about 1:18 a.m. to 1:35 a.m., in the parking lot of the Twin Pines Mall, Doc demonstrates his new time machine. His dog Einstein becomes the world's first time traveler at 1:20 a.m. The Libyans find, shoot and (seemingly) kill Doc. Marty flees in the DeLorean and accidentally departs for 1955 at 1:35 a.m.
    • At 1:24 a.m, Marty returns from his first trip to 1955, runs from Courthouse Square over to what is now the Lone Pine Mall, and discovers that Doc lived because he'd been warned by Marty in 1955 about the Libyans.
    • Marty wakes up in the morning and finds that the interior of his house has changed, and the lives of his family members have also improved, due to his altering the events of his mother and father's first meeting each other in 1955.
    • Doc travels to the future, then comes back at about 10 a.m. and takes Marty and Jennifer to 2015.
  • Sunday, October 27th:
    • Marty arrives back in 1985 at 11 a.m. from 1885 and the DeLorean is destroyed by a train. The ravine that the railroad bridge travels over is now called Eastwood Ravine instead of Clayton Ravine due to time-changing events that took place in 1885.
    • Marty originally races Douglas J. Needles and crashes into a Rolls-Royce, negatively affecting his future; but through his time-traveling adventures Marty has learned much and ultimately avoids the race, thus changing the future.
    • Doc, Clara and their sons arrive in the time locomotive to visit Marty and Jennifer, before departing for times unknown.
  • October/November: George McFly's first novel, A Match Made in Space, is published. The cover alludes to young George, young Lorraine, and "Darth Vader" (Marty's anti-radiation suit, utilized as a costume in 1955).
