We really haven’t forgotten about them.
“The Breakfast Club” has endured as one of the most popular films of the 1980s and now you can relive it. In honor of the 30th anniversary of its release, the movie will be shown in select theaters during a two-day run on March 26 and 31.
More than 430 theaters around the country will participate in the event, which will include a newly restored version. It will be introduced by a bonus featurette that looks back at the movie that helped define the genre of teen films. Fans will hear personal insights from cast members Judd Nelson, Ally Sheedy, Anthony Michael Hall and John Kapelos about the John Hughes-directed project.

Dear Mr. Vernon,
We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. What we did *was* wrong. But we think you’re crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are.
What do you care? You see us as you want to see us – in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions.
You see us as a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal. Correct?
That’s the way we saw each other at 7:00 this morning. We were brainwashed.
