Movies with an event in the past that is seen in the future.

Not necessarily time-travel, but something along those lines.

Good example is "Frequency", where the dad burnt the desk and the son watching the markings appear on the desk many years later.

"The Butterfly Effect" and "A Sound of Thunder" are two that have this as major plot points, and, of course, "Back to the Future" qualifies.

Any Others?

I haven't seen it, but The Lake House apparently has scenes like this (judging from the trailer).
