John Hughes Birthday Bash 

When: Thu., Feb. 18 2016
Originally released on Feb. 28, 1986, the John Hughes film Pretty in Pink centers on Andie (Molly Greenwald), a middle-class girl who falls for a rich kid (Andrew McCarthy). To celebrate its 30th anniversary, some local theaters will screen the movie this month. Born on Feb. 18, the late Hughes made a slew of teen movies in the ‘80s and helped launch the careers of actors such as Ringwald, Michael Keaton, Anthony Michael Hall, Bill Paxton, Matthew Broderick and Maccauley Culkin. The soundtracks to movies such as Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink featured some of the best underground acts of the 1980s. Tonight at 8 p.m., Music Box Supper Club throws a John Huges Birthday Bash and celebrates “everything 1980s." There will be a trivia contest, prizes, and drink specials. Leg-warmers, flashy colors, and teased hair are encouraged. The Sunrise Jones Band will play songs from Hughes films soundtracks. Tickets are $10. (Niesel)
