This Weekend - 80's Prom Night at the Brattle

There are many reasons why Boston gal loves the Brattle, and their homage to John Hughes this Saturday is just one of them. Bring it 80's Sing Along Prom!

The Brattle and The Action Pack are here to give you a chance to re-live (or live for the first time) the magic of the 80s prom with a brand new sing-along show featuring all the best music from the era, as well as paying special tribute to the musical moments from the films of dearly departed director John Hughes. WFNX's Julie Kramer will be spinning the tunes.

Formal prom attire is very much encouraged. And best costumes will win prizes. And remember, the Brattle sells Cambridge Brewing Co. beer, so you are allowed to get buzzed at this Prom. :) The event starts at 10pm on Saturday, doors open at 9:30pm. Tickets are $10 for members/students, $12 for general public. Buy your tickets now, your dress tomorrow, and gel later. Click here for tickets. Photo courtesy of the Neal Peters Collection.
