“The Breakfast Club” has endured as one of the most popular films of the 1980s and now you can relive it. In honor of the 30th anniversary of its release, the movie will be shown in select theaters during a two-day run on March 26 and 31.

More than 430 theaters around the country will participate in the event, which will include a newly restored version. It will be introduced by a bonus featurette that looks back at the movie that helped define the genre of teen films.
