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.

  • Don't You

    Don’t you forget about me.
    Really & Truly Kinda of cool for the re-release of this classic.
    Anybody growing up “back in the day” 1980’s or for that matter now or really whenever they where in High School will get a quick flash back to those Simpler Minds,
    I mean Simpler Times (no pun intended).

    You see the late Mr. John Hughes who directed this movie I had the erasure to meet before he passed away. John Hughes was a true thru and through director for all of his works.
    The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Home Alone, Dennis The Menace, The Miracle On 34th Street Redux and many more.
    Anyone reading this comment that sincerely enjoys a great movie that has not seen this classic, and an especially a true masterpiece should spend the money and go check “The Breakfast Club” out.
    After watching it, I beleive if you are a teenager, young adult or maybe one of us that grew up in that time, and after seeing this movie you will walk away and say to yourself, wow
    Mr. Hughes nailed it right on the money when it came to portraying what life is growing up in Any Town USA while in High School.
    Please Go See & Enjoy.

    Thanks for the great times.
