Mark your calendars, 'The Breakfast Club' is coming to theaters
The end all, be all, of teen movies everywhere is coming back to theaters — and thankfully, this discussion isn’t about it being remade or rebooted! No sir, the original movie that made detention seem pretty cool, The Breakfast Club, is celebrating its 30th birthday this year. In honor of that, mega milestone the movie is coming back to theaters for two nights this spring. Heck YES.
The late John Hughes’ iconic ’80s flick will be screened on March 26 and March 31 in partnership with Fathom Events. Best part is that this isn’t, like, a limited-city special engagement for only the biggest cities like New York, LA, and Chicago. NOPE, The Breakfast Club is coming to theaters all across the country so you might not even have to travel too far to catch a showing.
Also, the showings will feature a special Breakfast Club retrospective, which will include cast interviews (you know, basically the best cast ever assembled: Emilio Estevez, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, Ally Sheedy, AND Anthony Michael Hall) along with commentary from other notable filmmakers who’ve been inspired by the movie — like Diablo Cody and Amy Heckerling to name just two amazing filmmaking ladies. I imagine we all could be included in this retrospective, because in one way or another, this movie holds a HUGE place in all our cinephile hearts.
So whether you identify with the princess, the brains, the rebel, the outcast, the jock, or simply all of them, you can buy tickets RIGHT NOW for this extra-special-mind-blowingly-amazing two-night event. Only downside is that the showings are on a Tuesday and a Thursday, but I guess that makes sense — school nights. See you in detention.
