What is The Breakfast Club about? 

The iconic film takes place over the course of a Saturday detention, throwing together six high schoolers from very different cliques.

Starring Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy, the film is instantly quotable, while the final shot of rebel-without-a-cause John (Nelson) punching the air is one of the most memorable in movie history.

Ally said of the film, “When I signed-up to The Breakfast Club over 35 years ago, nobody knew how big the movie was going to be then, let alone the iconic movie it would still be all these years later.

"So, to give fans the opportunity to feel a part of the movies history and to talk to them about what makes it so special is something I am really looking forward to.”
