Music Box to Host John Hughes Birthday Bash

Concert Announcement

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. The Music Box Supper Club, a concert venue and restaurant located on the West Bank of the Flats, has also planned its own John Hughes tribute. 

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.

At 8 p.m. on Feb. 18, Music Box Supper Club throws a John Hughes 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.
