As the summer draws to a close and the school buses get ready to rumble, The Mahoning Drive-In Theater invites you to go back to school, 80s style, with a pair of John Hughes comedy classics on 35mm!
It’s “80s Back To School Night” on Friday, September 9th!
First up we play hooky with the master, dodging parents, responsibility and the Dean Of Students with Matthew Broderick, Mia Sara and Alan Ruck in FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF (1986)! Spend a day with Ferris, Sloane and Cameron as the paint the Windy City red, with Mr. Rooney hot on their heels!
What naturally follows a hooky day? Detention! That’s where we meet a brain, a beauty, a jock, a rebel and a recluse, who despite their differences form THE BREAKFAST CLUB (1985). Anthony Michael Hall, Molly Ringwald, Emilio Estevez, Judd Nelson and Ally Sheedy show a little of themselves and in turn show us a lot of ourselves in this classic comedy-drama portrait of high school angst.
Two great throwback hits to ease you into the school year, presented on 35mm on our giant outdoor screen. A totally awesome way to send off the summer!
All films presented via original 35mm prints.
