‘The Breakfast Club’ headed back to theaters for 30th anniversary


You didn’t forget about them, did you?

The five quintessential teens of writer-director John Hughes’ coming-of-age comedy-drama “The Breakfast Club” are headed back to the multiplex to mark the film’s 30th anniversary.

The story of a brain (Anthony Michael Hall), an athlete (Emilio Estevez), a basket case (Ally Sheedy), a princess (Molly Ringwald) and a criminal (Judd Nelson) reluctantly bonding over their mutual struggle to be understood, “The Breakfast Club” will screen in a newly remastered version March 26 and 31 at 7:30 p.m. at more than 430 theaters nationwide.

The showings will kick off with a bonus featurette looking back at the film and its legacy, with insights from cast members as well as filmmakers who have been inspired by the Brat Pack classic, including Diablo Cody (“Juno”), Amy Heckerling (“Clueless”) and Michael Lehman (“Heathers”).


Tickets will be available at participating theater box offices and online at beginning Friday. A 30th-anniversary home-video edition of “The Breakfast Club” will also be available from Universal on March 10.
