What happens when you put a Brain, a Beauty, a Jock, a Rebel, and a Basket Case together in detention on a Saturday morning? Come and experience this classic 80’s high school film in an outdoor cinema setting and listen to the soundtrack (without having to listen to your parents sing along).

This years’ outdoor film changed the genre of high school films and can be experienced for free just outside our very own film theater Filmuis de Zwarte Doos.

Genre: Drama, comedy, coming of age
Language: English

A ragtag bunch of unruly kids, struggling to define themselves against the stereotypes projected onto them by parents, teachers and peers, are stuck together at school for detention. Defiant at first, they eventually find a camaraderie when the principal buggers off and leaves them to entertain themselves.…

Come and see the mother of all high school films from the master John Hughes (Sixteen Candles, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Weird Science) and discover one of the best essays ever written about how to see yourself: “You see us as you want to see us: …as a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess, and a criminal. Correct? That’s the way we saw each other at 7 o’clock this morning. We were brainwashed.”

Gather all your friends, dress for the weather, grab yourself a drink at the Zwarte Doos restaurant and come and watch this awesome film outdoors on the big screen! Bring your own chair or use one of the ones provided. 

“It’s a movie for anyone who’s ever had zits…This is the only one you could get away with calling iconic. Good and bad, it's still the definitive '80s teen movie”.  Empire.

“An honest attempt to create teenagers who might seem plausible to other teenagers". Roger Ebert (written in 1986).

“The Breakfast Club was written, directed and produced by John Hughes, the man who made coming-of-age films come of age. Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off make a pretty impressive back-catalogue, but The Breakfast Club is still regarded by film critics as the cherry on Hughes’s teen cheesecake”. The Guardian
