Fashion and movie lovers rejoice: The Breakfast Club is taking over the Hot Docs Cinema for a special ‘80s themed event with us and Hot Docs!

Bust out your finest flannel, your snazziest Air Jordans and Molly Ringwald-approved preppy princess pearls, for a rollicking screening of the John Hughes classic before we check in with Nishi Bassi, curator of our brilliant Dressed to Impress exhibit, for a special Q&A on ‘80s footwear and fashion.

An instant sensation on its 1985 release, this endearing tale of five mismatched students gritting their teeth through a Saturday detention has won generations of fans not only for its iconic characters, career-defining performances and endlessly quotable dialogue but also for its much imitated, eternally fresh outfits.

Whether you’re a Brain or an Athlete, a Basket Case or a Princess—whether you wear cone heels, Gucci loafers or New Wave rocker boots—you won’t want to miss this one-of-a-kind celebration of this beloved movie classic and its unforgettable style.

This screening is presented in partnership with Hot Docs.
