Cult classic The Breakfast Club turns thirty this week. In honor of everyone’s favorite high school misfits, the movie is returning to select theaters for a limited release on March 26th (today!) and March 31st.

If you haven’t watched this movie in a while, it’s time to rectify that situation, whether it’s on the big screen, or at home. If you’re staying in for your 80s nostalgia session, invite your friends over, make all the 1980s-inspired snacks that the misfits would love, and press play.
