There is no better angsty teen movie to grow up watching than The Breakfast Club. This is an indisputable fact. But you know what's better than watching it edited by TBS on a Saturday morning? Seeing it on the big screen! We Los Angelenos can now do so by making the long trek into Orange County to see it Wednesday night, May 25 at 7:30 pm at South Coast Village Regency Theatre (1561 W Sunflower Ave, Santa Ana).
There is something so identifiable about each of these five characters that just keeps audiences coming back. John Hughes was definitely the best at capturing that teenage confusion in a sincere, yet funny way, and what girl didn't want to grow up to be Molly Ringwald? Do yourself a favor and try to watch these older movies in a theatre. The communal experience of watching something in a room full of people who love it as much as you do makes it so memorable. One of my favorite theatre experiences was seeing Back to the Future in a big crowd. This venue will be showing plenty of classics in the months to come, and I'll keep you posted here. Tickets are $7. Have fun!
