Breakfast Club

20130413-092929.jpgThe 13th Annual Belfast Film Festival is in full swing and providing us with some truly memorable magical moments, starting off for us with the Friday night showing of The Breakfast Club.

This classic movie from the mid 1980’s about a group of school kids on Saturday detention in the school library, was by total stroke of genius, shown in the beautiful Inst school library.

It was one of those special nights were movie lovers, ex Inst pupils, and those those on a trip down memory lane, all gathered together and became our own exclusive breakfast club gang.

We sat on the back row (old habits die hard!) and watched everyone. There were the as expected mid 40 year old gang who where around in the mid 80’s when The Breakfast Club was THE movie to see. There were a few ‘old boys’ who had been Inst students and hadn’t seen each other since they left school, and there were the young movie buffs wanting to see a movie classic on the big screen in a superb location.

We watched, laughed and reminisced our way through this memorable movie experience which ended with a round of applause from everyone in the room. Yes, that’s how much everyone enjoyed it. It was like our own little friday night breakfast club.

There are many great things happening with the Film Festival this year and I would highly recommend you all checking out their programme and get yourself organised for a night at the movies.

Tickets for the festival are available online at, by phoning the Festival Box Office on 028 9024 6609 or from the Belfast Welcome Centre at 47 Donegall Place, Belfast.
