South­side with You,” a film about the first date of Pres­i­dent Barack Oba­ma and the First Lady, will pre­miere at the­aters on August 26.  The big screen romance, which is set in Chica­go dur­ing the sum­mer of 1989, begins with the two prepar­ing for their day togeth­er.  With just a week until the movie’s release, we thought it fit­ting to share these throw­back pho­tos of the First Cou­ple in their ear­ly years through their entrance into the White House.
