Movie Scenes – The Four Most Memorable Scenes Set In The Garage

Have you ever noticed that in pretty much every brilliant film there is an epic garage scene? These movie scenes set in garages are usually not mentioned often. However, they usually are of great importance to the entire film. You’ll soon come to understand what on earth we are talking about.

Back To The Future Movie Scenes

Back To The Future is an iconic film about time travel, a crazy yet genius scientist/doctor (Dr Emmet Brown) and a young man named Marty McFly. Or better know as Doc and Marty.  So far, we have not met anyone who does not love the movie and the time-travelling, brilliant, Back To The Future car – The Delorean

But what about the very place the Delorean was created? Does anyone actually remember where it was that Doc invented this magical invention? You’ve guessed it. The garage. The best garage for scientific experiments and mad ideas. Without the garage, there would be no place for Doc to have tested out his out-of-this-world inventions.

Batman Begins Movie Scenes

Yet another garage pro is Mr Bruce Wayne, more commonly known as Batman. Batman is a crime-fighting, husky-voiced hero that drives the very famous Batmobile. His more-than-helpful Butler (Alfred Pennyworth) feeds Batman useful information when he is on a life-saving mission.

Where is it that Alfred produces all this information from? The secret underground garage called the Batcave of course! The Batmobile would have nowhere to live without the comforts of its custom car garage. With no Batcave, there would be no safe place for Alfred to leak vital information to Batman.
