Get ready to feel nostalgic! An app for movie buffs called ScenePast gets folks to travel Back to the Future style. The program allows users to search for a city and year, look back at a snapshot from favorite old movies shot in the area, and then compare it to how the spot looks today. We played around with a few from scenes from Pretty to Pink to Scarface and picked out our favorites.
