Party at the Hudson Hotel's underground venue, Good Units!

From Giant Step:

On Monday, September 20th, following The Film Society's NEW WAVE Committee's screening of The Breakfast Club and the star studded panel discussion led by director Kevin Smith, please join us for a very special After-Party at Good Units at Hudson with special guest DJs Ivan Pavlovich and David Prince.

Entrance is Free but strictly RSVP only.

On September 19th and 20th join The Film Society in remembering John Hughes when six of his most popular titles will screen including a very special 25th Anniversary screening of The Breakfast Club with cast and peers from some of John’s most memorable films (Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy) who will gather to discuss their personal stories of working with this true storytelling legend.

John Hughes was born in Lansing, Michigan, to a stay-at-home mother and father, John Hughes, Sr., who worked in sales. He spent the first 12 years of his life in Grosse Pointe, Michigan. In 1962, the Hughes's family moved to Northbrook, Illinois. Graduating from Glenbrook North High School in 1968, Hughes used Northbrook and the adjacent North Shore area for shooting locations and settings in many of his films, though he usually left the name of the town unsaid, or referred to it as "Shermer, Illinois", Shermerville being the original name of Northbrook.

When Hughes died in August of 2009 at the age of 59, it had been nearly two decades since he had sat in the director’s chair, and one since he had signed his own name to a screenplay. But despite his self-imposed Hollywood exile, Hughes and his films — iconic portraits of suburban American adolescence — continued to loom large, for successive generations of teen moviegoers, and for the filmmakers (including Judd Apatow, Kevin Smith, and Jason Reitman) openly influenced by his work.
