The Breakfast Club and Chicago

Through location and music, discover how 'The Breakfast Club' defines a generation of moviegoers.

About This Tour


This hour-long program on the 1985 movie The Breakfast Club unfolds in two parts: 

First, guests walk virtually around the former suburban Chicago high school where The Breakfast Club filmed. While we cannot go inside with a video camera (we have pics though!), we can explore the building's exterior and learn how it reflects a group of teenagers who feel imprisoned by their high school culture, peers, and parents. 

Second, guests will examine Simple Minds' song "Don't You (Forget about Me)," featured memorably in The Breakfast Club. In the process, they will hear behind-the-scenes stories from the teen film, learn about the music's connections to MTV, and understand how the iconic song still functions as a metaphor for victory.

In short, through location and music, your guests will discover how this Chicago-based movie defines a generation of moviegoers.
