Master Pancake Theater presents "The Breakfast Club"
Master Pancake Theater's beer-soaked shows feature raucous film commentary (in the style of MST3K) that Entertainment Weekly calls "a glorious pairing of turkey movies with live comedy." They've been selling out Austin's legendary Alamo Drafthouse for years with mockings of favorites like JURASSIC PARK, TWILIGHT and THE MATRIX. Now they're headed to Portland for the first time with a skewering of 1985's classic angstfest THE BREAKFAST CLUB!
Directed by '80s teen-meister John Hughes, THE BREAKFAST CLUB features pouty-lipped fireball Molly Ringwald and fellow brat-packers Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, Emilio Estevez and Ally Sheedy as a quintet of misfits trapped together in detention for one fateful afternoon. While there, these five Jungian archetypes of high school life (the geek, the jock, the princess, the thug and the Cure fan) learn that they are not in fact so very different after all. Originally titled "LIBRARY REVOLUTION," THE BREAKFAST CLUB shows that by banding together you can overthrow "the man" -- or at least your douche-bag principal -- played perfectly here by the master of assoholitude, Paul Gleason (TRADING PLACES; DIE HARD).
Join us for some "Simple Minded" fun as Master Pancake gives a purple nurple to one of the best/worst teen revolution movies of all time! Also, prizes for anyone who can hold their breath longer than Joe!
