The jock. The princess. The thug. The nerd. The misfit. The sadistic principal. Stir them all together with John Hughes’s brain, and you’ve got gooey 80’s goodness!

For one night only, The Breakfast Club will screen at the historic Pix Theatre! That is, if we reach the tipping point in time.

Here’s the skinny: The Pix will show The Breakfast Club on May 14, but only if enough folks come to the screening. Here’s how it works:

  1. Go through checkout – it’s just like you’re buying a tickets, only we won’t collect your payment or issue your tickets until the movie hits its tipping point of 50 tickets.
  2. Spread the word! – Once we get 50 folks to come, the show is on! But it has to tip by May 8. If it doesn’t tip, you’re not out anything. We won’t collect your payments, and the movie won’t show. It’s up to YOU to make it happen!
  3. Head to the Pix – We’ll email you when your tickets are ready. Just print out your ticket or show it on your smart phone at the door.
  4. Vote! – What shows next is up to you. Head to the Vote page to choose what shows at the Pix’s next Crowded Theatre screening. Don’t see a movie you like? Tell us what your favorite movies are on the Suggest page. The Pix is yours!

Yet the students bond together when faced with the villainous principal (Paul Gleason), and they realize that they have more in common than they may think, including a contempt for adult society. “When you grow up, your heart dies,” Allison proclaims in one of the film’s many scenes of soul-searching, and, judging from the adults depicted in the film, the teen audience may very well agree. -from
