Details on the John Hughes Film Fest in Tempe, AZ

We told you last Friday about an upcoming John Hughes Film Festival in Tempe, the university-friendly suburb of Phoenix. The Big Picture is proud to partner with Harkins Theaters for this exclusive chance to honor the memory of John Hughes through six of his classic films, which begins this Friday.

When we first broke the news, I thought it would be a couple days, maybe run the full weekend, but Harkins is so committed to the event that for a solid week, the Valley Art is showing nothing but John Hughes movies. Because of its rich history, the 69-year-old theater is one of my absolute favorites, and when it was remodeled a few years ago, they did a tremendous job giving it the modern creature comforts while keeping that link to its history. So it's a perfect place to see these movies.

The schedule is below, but the films you can see beginning this Friday, August 14th are The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Sixteen Candles, Planes, Trains and Automobiles, and Weird Science. He directed five of the six - in order, by the way, and the one he didn't was Pretty in Pink. Tickets are only five bucks each, which is a smokin' deal, and we have an extremely limited number of free passes to check out any one of the movies, so act fast if you want to go. We'll have some trivia for you after the schedule.

People deserve wealthy life and loans or car loan can make it much better. Just because freedom relies on money state.
