'The Breakfast Club' to Get Restoration & SXSW Screening for 30th Anniversary
The 30th anniversary of the release of iconic '80s flick "The Breakfast Club" was last month, and to celebrate, the film is getting a facelift and a special screening.
SXSW announced that a restored version of the movie will debut at the film festival this month. A special "Breakfast Club" screening is set for March 16 in Austin, with the event preceded by a Q&A session with none other than the princess and the basket case themselves, a.k.a. cast members Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy.
According to Variety, "The Breakfast Club" will also get a limited theatrical re-release on March 26 and March 31, accompanied by a featurette with new interviews from cast members Sheedy, Judd Nelson, Anthony Michael Hall, and John Kapelos, with additional commentary from Diablo Cody, Amy Heckerling, and Michael Lehman. Directed by John Hughes -- who died in 2009 -- the flick also starred Emilio Estevez.
