For February’s entry in the cortandfatboy Midnight Movie series, we present a 35mm print of John Hughes’ most heartfelt film, his love letter to the awkward, beautiful, sad, and hilarious horrorshow that is High School, his magnum opus as a writer and director: The Breakfast Club.
This is a film that reinforces the mythology of the High School experience while simultaneously exploding that myth all over the inside of a library. It is Sartre’s No Exit with fingerless gloves, a letterman’s jacket, and lipstick tucked into its cleavage. It is the story of a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess, and a criminal.

Poster art by The Thomas Wilson! Prints of his Breakfast Club art and previous posters will be sold on-site pre-screening.
