“Breakfast Club” reunion in NYC tonight, followed by Kevin Smith panel discussion

By Sean O’Connell Crank up Simple Minds and get ready to describe the ruckus. Four members of John Hughes’ original “Breakfast Club” will take the stage tonight at the Paris Theatre in New York City for a 25tht Anniversary screening of the film, followed by a post-screening panel discussion.

Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, and Ally Sheedy will attend the sold-out, commemorative event, presented by New Wave.

The post-screening panel will be moderated by “Clerks” and “Cop Out” filmmaker Kevin Smith, who was on the nationally syndicated “Opie and Anthony” radio program this morning to discuss the appearance.

Smith, a born conversationalist, lamented the fact that he’ll only have 45 minutes with this cast, when he said he could easily do an hour with each member of the “Club.” Anyone who has attended one of Smith’s entertaining live shows knows that’s no exaggeration.

Immediately following the event, there will be an afterparty at Good Units, Hudson, 356 West 58th Street. If you can’t attend, linger near your Twitter feed, as I’m sure Smith will tweet heavily before, during, and after the event.
