Pretty in Pink

Wednesday • July 17 • 7:00pm
Way Back Wednesday at The Iowa Theater

The Brat Pack feature continues with this Molly Ringwald classic!

Andie (Molly Ringwald) is an outcast at her Chicago high school, hanging out either with her older boss (Annie Potts), who owns the record store where she works, or her quirky classmate Ducky (Jon Cryer), who has a crush on her. When one of the rich and popular kids at school, Blane (Andrew McCarthy), asks Andie out, it seems too good to be true. As Andie starts falling for Blane, she begins to realize that dating someone from a different social sphere is not easy. 1986, PG-13, 1 hrs 36 mins
