September at The Paramount: "Back to School" Theme

August 24, 2009

The Paramount Theater is paying tribute to the recent passing of writer/director/producer John Hughes. September's theme of “Back To School” will be its own tribute to John Hughes.

Hughes' movies did as much to define and embody that particular cultural era as any other body of work, and they've left an indelible stamp on several generations. Enjoy concessions, including cold beer and wine, popcorn, and candy, in the theater during the broadcast!

All movies are at 7pm and 9pm.

9/14 - Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

9/21 - Pretty In Pink

9/28 - The Breakfast Club

More details can be found on the official website for The Paramount.
