The brain, athlete, basketcase, princess, and criminal will return to the big screen to celebrate the 30th anniversary of "The Breakfast Club" on March 27 and March 31. John Hughes changed lives in his sentimental and honest films that were written from the heart. He was able to reach so many teens and adults because this films were influenced by his own personal experiences.
"The Breakfast Club" helped define a generation and its evergreen influence will continue to inspire teens for years to come. This gives present teens the opportunity to put their phones away and see a eight hours and fifty four minutes between five teens and their ability to connect without social media.
"The Breakfast Club" will be shown in a select number of theaters to celebrate its anniversary. Over 430 theaters will take part in the celebration and a restored version of the film will be shown along with a bonus introduction looking back on the film. Tickets are available at local theaters, for more information on specific show times or to purchase tickets head to FathomEvents.com and to see a list of participating theaters.
Not only was the film influential but the soundtrack was as well. In the opening credits of the film lyrics by David Bowie come to the screen as quickly as their broken. “…And these children that you spit on as they try to change their worlds are immune to your consultations. They’re quite aware of what they’re going through…”
Simple Minds recorded the famous “Don’t You Forget About Me” which was written specifically for the film and at first they weren’t big fans of recording a song they didn’t write. After meeting with John Hughes and seeing a screening of the film they decided to record it showing how influential the film was and continues to be.
The budget for "The Breakfast Club" was only one million and has grossed over 38 million. Pivotal direct, John Hughes suffered from a heart attack while taking a walk in the park in Manhattan on the morning of August 6, 2009. He was taken away too soon but fans will never forget about him or the films he created that will live on for years to come.
