Performances of Back To The Future: The Musical continue at the Adelphi Theatre which sits on three levels. The premium seating sections in the theatre can be found in the centre of the Stalls and at the front of the Dress Circle on the first floor. The Adelphi Theatre is a large venue and has multiple price bands on each level which can be exploited to keep ticket prices down by studying the seating plan of the theatre and looking for the cut off points.

The Adelphi benefits from having predominantly clear view seating throughout and has few seats featuring restrictions to the view of the stage so during peak times value can also be found in several of the price bands in the Upper Circle section and also on the wings in the Stalls and Dress Circle for patrons looking for cheap Back To The Future tickets.
