Nobody translates the teenage psyche to film better than John Hughes. Nobody. We have this genius to thank for the 80s classics such as Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Pretty In Pink, The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles - the latter two of which are playing back to back at The Astor Theatre this Saturday night. That’s right: strap in for some quality Molly Ringwald.
After briefly closing down earlier this year, The Astor Theatre was thankfully saved and given new life under the management and craftsmanship of General Manager Zak Hepburn. Their most recent calendar is fun, clever, and a little off-beat in an absolutely glorious way. If you’re after a pair of classics that get more enjoyable after every watch, don’t miss this John Hughes double feature for an awesome date night or a nostalgic evening with your pals.
