LOS ANGELES — A brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal are returning to the big screen.
“The Breakfast Club” is celebrating its 30th anniversary by coming back to movie theaters for a limited showing at the end of March.
The Brat Pack classic that starred Molly Ringwald, Anthony Michael Hall, Emilio Estevez, Judd Nelson and Ally Sheedy was written and directed by John Hughes and was filmed at Maine North High School in Des Plaines. Hughes spent much of his life in Chicago and its suburbs. His adopted hometown was the setting for many of his films, including “The Breakfast Club.”
Universal Pictures will include a featurette called “The Breakfast Club – A Retrospective” in the screenings.
Screenings of the film will take place March 26 and March 31 at 7: 30 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, February 13th.
