A Dementia-Friendly screening of the hit love story by John Hughes starring Molly Ringwald (Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club) and Andrew McCarthy (St. Elmo’s Fire).
She’s a high school girl from the wrong side of town. He’s the wealthy heart-throb who asks her to the prom. But as fast as their romance builds, it’s threatened by the painful reality of peer pressure. A bittersweet story with an upbeat ending and a phenomenal rock score.
