For Phillip Roffman, CEO of Fort Lauderdale-based Subculture, that dream job is a reality. On Saturday, his latest pop-culture-oriented event, titled Sincerely Yours, Marty McFly, will come to fruition at the Classic Gateway Theatre in Fort Lauderdale. The '80s-themed party will include screenings of the 1985 cult classics "The Breakfast Club" (9 p.m.) and"Back to the Future" (12:30 a.m.), intermission performances by local bands Suede Dudes and Beach Day, and an '80s-themed photo booth operated by Fort Lauderdale photographer Ian Witlen.
