'Breakfast Club' Remastered For 30th Anniversary Theatrical Release At SXSW 2015


The brain, the athlete, the basket case, the princess, and the criminal -- all reunite once more 30 years after that fateful Saturday morning when the unlikely band of high school students first crossed paths at detention. The new digitally remastered version of the popular movie will debut on SXSW 2015.

With a breath of new life and fresh color, the film will be screened as if it were just released yesterday at the historic Paramount Theatre on Mar. 16.

The John Hughes classic hit a nerve with audiences for its honest portrayal of several high school stereotypes who on the surface, had nothing in common with each other. Over the course of their morning and afternoon detention, they discussed issues with each other like friendship, love, school and life.

According to the official announcement made last month, the original stars of the movie will be on hand at the screening to answer audience questions. Ally Sheedy and Molly Ringwald have confirmed their attendance.

The SXSW screening will reportedly be followed by a small-scale run in theaters from Mar. 26 to 31.

Taking part in a short feature about the film, which will also be shown, are actors Judd Nelson, Anthony Michael Hall and John Kapelos. Diablo Cody and Amy Heckerling will also be featured to share how the iconic movie influenced their film making careers.

Registration for SXSW is still ongoing. Badges for the event will get you into movie screening, music shows, and interactive exhibits that will take place in Austin, Texas on Mar. 13 to 22.

Those who can't attend the very special world premiere, don't worry! The remastered edition of the 1985 movie will be released on DVD, Digital HJD, and Blu-Ray on Mar. 10 so you can hang out with The Breakfast Club all over again.
