A payphone was a coin-operated public telephone.
Behind the scenes
- In a deleted scene from Back to the Future, Mark Dixon traps George McFly in a payphone booth at Hill Valley High School during the Enchantment Under the Sea dance, and Mr. Strickland refuses to break him out.
- In real life, by 2015 most outside payphones had been removed because of the prevalence of cell phones, something that Back to the Future Part II obviously didn't foresee (although bulky cellular telephones were in use in 1989).
