If you thought the age of enlightenment started with the Oprah generation, you haven’t talked to a kid who grew up in the ’80s with After School Specials. Always informative and often entirely mockable, After School Specials paved the way for legit cool movies starring “teens” (read: 20- and 30-somethings) to really show kids the ropes when it came to relationships, friendships, hating your parents, understanding your parents, sex, drugs, and alcohol, and of course, how to skip school and end up in a parade singing Danke Schoen.
From The Breakfast Club to Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, from The Goonies to Clueless, we’ve got all your favorite teen angst and teen comedies booked for a modern-retro After School Special series this summer with more to come in the Fall. If you need a refresher course in how the good guy gets the girl, how the good guy always has great hair, and how the goofy kids always win in the end, come by any Wednesday and we’ll school you.
