The Breakfast Club gets a remastered theatrical release for its 30th birthday

New, 25 comments

World premiere at SXSW 2015

The Breakfast Club is getting restored and remastered, marking 30 years since the John Hughes classic put five very different high school archetypes — a brain, a beauty, a jock, a rebel, and a recluse — in detention to teach them about friendship and other feelings.

The restored film will premiere on March 16th in Austin's Paramount Theatre, as part of the city's SXSW festival. Ally Sheedy and Molly Ringwald, who starred as The Breakfast Club's recluse and beauty, respectively, will also be in attendance to answer questions from the audience. That'll be followed by a small theatrical re-release later this month — 430 screens across the US will show the remastered edition, plus a bonus featurette with the cast and crew, between March 26th and 31st.
