Celebrate the 30th Anniversary of The Breakfast Club at movie theaters

02.12.2015

Man, this makes me feel really old. It was thirty years ago that John Hughes premiered the film that would become synonymous with his career. THE BREAKFAST CLUB hit theaters in 1985 and gave us the teen ensemble comedy that was actually a heartfelt drama about coming of age and fitting in unlike anything we have really seen before or since. Now, on the verge of the film's special edition hitting Blu-ray and DVD, THE BREAKFAST CLUB is coming back to theaters.

Universal Pictures and Fathom Events are teaming up for a limited run this March 26th and 31st. The film will be a remastered version of THE BREAKFAST CLUB which will also be shown with a featurette with the cast and crew discussing the impact of the film.

I love THE BREAKFAST CLUB and find that it still lives up even three decades after it was released. Unlike some other films from John Hughes, this movie both encapsulates the 1980s but also feels incredibly contemporary. This seems like a great event to check out this Valentine's Day eve no matter if you are a brain, an athlete, a basket case, aprincess, or a criminal.

The theatrical re-release of THE BREAKFAST CLUB will arrive just after the special edition Blu-ray release of the film as well as The John Hughes Yearbook Collection boxset which also includes SIXTEEN CANDLES and WEIRD SCIENCE (click those links to purchase via Amazon).  Both arrive on March 10th.  Find the details below.

The Breakfast Club 30th Anniversary and The John Hughes Yearbook Collection will be available on Blu-ray™ and Digital HD with UltraViolet™ and DVD.  

  • Blu-ray™ unleashes the power of your HDTV and is the best way to watch movies at home, featuring 6X the picture resolution of DVD, exclusive extras and theater-quality surround sound.

To me, it's the best high school drama ever made. It's been more than two decades but the movie still holds up pretty damn well.

Very few movies are simultaneously a product of their time and still hold up today

but THE BREAKFAST CLUB manages to pull off that feat. It helps that so many of its themes still ring true 30 years later.

Of course, the biggest irony is that Bender - not Claire - is the one pushing maximum density in the left pic!

I really wish more theaters would re-release old films every now and again. It was a blast to see Jurassic Park and Halloween again on the big screen.

I myself want to see John Carpenter's Christine back on a big screen once more.

This sounds much better than any would-be Breakfast Club remake. Just re-release classic movies in cinemas, that's all I'm asking.

No remake, hmm. Why is that door closed? Who closed that door?

Since there're lots of remake out there now (some are good, some are bad), I wish this one would never get remade. The Breakfast Club was a product of its time and it has a special place in my heart.

There are some decent remakes, but for the most part they don't turn out so well. The Breakfast Club I have seen many times and I agree that it's a film that should be left as is.

now that I'm a parent

I watch this and think they are a bunch of whiney kids who should stop blaming everyone else for those own self obsession and general arseholishness.
