After 30 years, The Breakfast Club is finally getting out of detention. A newly remastered version of the John Hughes teen classic will debut March 16 at SXSW in Austin in time to celebrate the film’s 30th anniversary, organizers said today. Stars Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy will take part in an audience Q&A before the screening, so if you ever wondered why Brian (Anthony Michael Hall) had that gun in his locker, this is your chance.
This is all part of a push ahead of the pic’s birthday. Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, Fathom Events and BY Experience are hosting a mini theatrical rerelease of the 1985 film on March 26 and March 31 on about 430 screens nationwide. The screenings include a bonus featurette with the cast and filmmakers.
The Breakfast Club 30th Anniversary Edition will be available first on Blu-ray, Digital HD and DVD on March 10.
