GCU Offers Latest Installment of Centennial Film Classic Series

University Offers Viewing of 1980s John Hughes Movie Classic The Breakfast Club

Lakewood, N.J., Apr. 7, 2009—Georgian Court celebrates its Centennial year with Centennial Film Classics, a Monday night film series featuring movies from each of the eight decades that the university has resided in Lakewood.

The latest installment for the 1980s decade, The Breakfast Club (1985), will be shown on Monday, April 27, at 6:30 p.m. in the Little Theatre on GCU’s Lakewood campus. The quintessential “Brat Pack” film features five teenage students who have little in common making the most out of high school detention and discovering things about themselves and each other.

Admission is free, but reservations are required due to limited space. For more information or to make reservations, contact GCU’s Office of Conferences and Special Events at 732.987.2263 or specialevents@georgian.edu.

About The Breakfast Club
It's the weekend, and five students have weekend detention. There's an athlete, a princess, a basket case, a brain, and a rebel. Not much in common, except for having to give up their day, sit in the school library, and write an essay for the principal. Being from such widely different backgrounds and having such completely different personalities, it's inevitable that some frictions and shenanigans develop. But somehow each of them finds qualities about the others that make this Saturday morning change their lives forever.

Founded in 1908 and sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy, Georgian Court University is a comprehensive university with a strong liberal arts core and a special concern for women. A forward-thinking university that supports diversity and academic excellence, Georgian Court serves over 3,000 students of all faiths and backgrounds in a residential Women's College and a coeducational University College with undergraduate and graduate programs. Georgian Court's main campus is located at 900 Lakewood Avenue, Lakewood, N.J., on the picturesque former George Jay Gould estate, now named a National Historic Landmark. Georgian Court also offers classes at its site at 90 Woodbridge Center Drive in Woodbridge, at Coastal Communiversity in Wall, and at Cumberland County College in Vineland.
