The Brat Pack returns to the big screen March 26 and 31 at 7:30 p.m. local time with The Breakfast Club 30th Anniversary.
Longtime fans and newcomers alike will be able to gather their friends and head to the cinema for a true fan tribute honoring one of John Hughes’ most memorable and recognizable films. The Breakfast Club was released in theaters February 15, 1985 for the first time and earned nearly $46 million during its theatrical run. (When released on VHS in 1986 it became one of the highest selling titles and rentals of all time).
This 30th anniversary release is the first nationwide big screen event of the newly restored version and will be introduced by a bonus featurette that takes a look back at the film that defined a genre and a generation. In addition, fans will hear personal insights from cast members Judd Nelson, Ally Sheedy, Anthony Michael Hall and John Kapelos as well as contributions from filmmakers Diablo Cody, Amy Heckerling and Michael Lehman.
Tickets for The Breakfast Club 30th Anniversary are available at participating theater box offices and online at www.FathomEvents.com. The event will be presented in more than 430 movie theaters around the country.
Widely considered one of the best coming-of-age films of all time, The Breakfast Club includes iconic performances from Molly Ringwald (“the princess”), Anthony Michael Hall (“the brain”), Emilio Estevez (“the athlete”), Judd Nelson (“the criminal”) and Ally Sheedy (“the basket case”) as they endure a Saturday detention under a power-hungry principal (Paul Gleason). Each has a chance to tell his or her story, making the others see them a little differently — and when the day ends, they question whether school will ever be the same.
