The Breakfast Club — 30th Anniversary
Englert Theatre — Saturday, March 28 at 6 p.m.
Attention brains, athletes, basket cases, princesses and criminals: In celebration of the film’s thirtieth anniversary, the Englert Theatre will host a costume contest and screening of John Hughes’s The Breakfast Club this Saturday, March 28 beginning 6 p.m.
The 1980’s cult classic is a pop-culture mainstay, and the Englert’s screening will bring fans and first-timers together to appreciate what really makes it one.
“I think every kid can relate to the movie’s teenage angst and rebellion, but I also feel like they need to be told that they matter and are heard,” said Aly High, the Englert’s Marketing Director. “As a teenager, it’s hard to understand that your experiences have meaning and to see what they’re adding up to, and I think The Breakfast Club shows that perspective in a smart way.”
Starting at 6 p.m., there will be drinks and a Breakfast Club costume contest in the Douglas and Linda Paul Gallery. Prizes will be awarded in three categories: best dressed character from the film, best dressed for a full group of the “Breakfast Club” and best dressed character from any John Hughes film. The screening of the classic will follow at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $10 and available either online or at the Englert box office.
