Last summer '80s film god John Hughes died after collapsing on a sidewalk in Manhattan. Since then, there have been some heartfelt tributes that have reunited his most celebrated of creations: the Brat Pack. And now the Film Society of Lincoln Center is hosting a two-day celebration of Hughes’s films, called “John Hughes: We Can’t Forget About Him.”
The series will take place September 19th and 20th at the Walter Reade Theater (tickets on sale August 5th), and will include screenings of Sixteen Candles, Pretty In Pink and Ferris Bueller's Day Off, as well as Planes, Trains & Automobiles and Home Alone. The centerpiece seems to be on the 2nd day, when there will be a 25th-anniversary screening of The Breakfast Club followed by a Q&A between Kevin Smith and cast members Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy. Wow, that's a big "eat my shorts" from Emilio Estevez.
