Raise your fist in a triumphant salute and cue the Simple Minds song. Former Brat Packer and enduring '80s icon Molly Ringwald is bringing The Breakfast Club to Clearwater. Ringwald, 47, is marking the 30th anniversary of John Hughes' touchstone dramedy with a national tour stopping at Capitol Theatre on Oct. 3 at 7 p.m. General admission tickets ($60-$75) go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m, available at the Ruth Eckerd Hall box office, online at atthecap.com, or by calling (727) 791-7400. A limited number of VIP tickets including premium seating and a meet-and-greet with Ringwald are available for $175. Titled Molly Ringwald Revisits the Club, the audience-interactive event includes a screening of The Breakfast Club followed by a Q&A session. Hot off the success of Sixteen Candles, Ringwald played the "princess" among socially diverse misfits — a group including a brain, jock, criminal and basket case — spending a Saturday in detention, learning they're not so different after all. Should be fun. Don't you forget about this. Steve Persall, Times movie critic
