I’m about to age a lot of our readers right now with this little fact: “The Breakfast Club” turns 30 years old this year. However, don’t let the fact that so many years of your life have passed on make you sad but celebrate that after the all these years “The Breakfast Club” is still a great film.
You can celebrate “The Breakfast Club” at a screening at the Music Box Theatre. You’re encouraged to come in our best ’80s attire, and prepare to time travel to a time that is like no other in the history of the world.
One of the most nostalgic and best things about this John Hughes film, like many of his other films, is the soundtrack, which is why WBEZ’s “Sound Opinions” hosts Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot are presenting the film. They’ll have a discussion about the New Wave soundtrack including the infamous Simple Minds track “Don’t You Forget About Me.” So get ready for a lot of fist raising.
“The Breakfast Club” will be screening April 22 at 7:30 p.m. at the Music Box Theatre located at 3733 N. Southport Ave. Tickets at the door are $15. For more information visit musicboxtheatre.com/events/sound-opinions-at-the-movies-presents-the-breakfast-club-2015-apr-22-wed-0730pm.
