The Breakfast Club, at Historic Market Square. In the endlessly quotable and always relevant 1985 film – as if you haven’t seen it already – five seemingly disparate teenagers, trapped for a day in detention, break through the social strata of high school to find common ground and friendship in unlikely packages. Be sure to bring dinner or stop by one of the many restaurants in the area, like nearby Niko Niko’s, before the movie.
