Re-live the glory days of the 80’s, or see what all the fuss was about, as you’re transported from Central Library to a high school library in 1985, to a time when leather gloves were fashionable and teenage angst was contagious. Celebrated as one of the greatest high-school films and, not surprisingly, directed by John Hughes – The Breakfast Club follows a day in the life of 5 teenagers who all find themselves in detention in their school library on a Saturday afternoon.
With nothing in common, they bare their souls to one another over the course of the day and become good friends. As in all good high-school films, it’s not without its teenage stereotypes: there’s the arrogant, swaggering tough guy, the insecure neurotic who hides behind her hair and clothes, the jock from the wrestling team, the prom queen and the class brain.
Don’t miss the chance to see a rare public screening of this cult-classic, which will be shown using Central Library’s state-of-the-art projector and projection screen in the newly-opened Performance Space.
Visors and sweat pants optional.
