Pretty in Pink
hit the big screen. But really, no other cult classic has epitomized the high-school dilemma of boys, social cliques, and prom like Andie, Duckie, and the rest of crew in the 1986 flick. In celebration of the film’s 30th anniversary, Popcorn Nights and O Cinema Wynwood (90 NW 29th St., Miami) will throw Pretty in Prom: Immersive Cinematic Experience
. More than just a film screening, the night will feel like you’re in a real-life version of Pretty in Pink
(minus the drama), with a Duckie lip-synch contest, jams from the '80s, cheesy prom photos, and an '80s costume contest where you can win some totally tubular prizes. Plus, the first 100 guests to show up will receive a pair of free pink sunglasses. Once the festivities subside, you’ll get to watch the Brat Pack flick. It all goes down Thursday. The night kicks off at 7 p.m. with Pretty in Prom shenanigans, followed by the screening of Pretty in Pink
at 9 p.m. There will also be class portraits on the wall of the outdoor courtyard, so don’t forget to email your old high-school photos to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject line “Prom Picture: (Your Name).” Tickets cost $21 plus fees via o-cinema.org

It’s hard to believe it’s been three decades since John Hughes' masterpiece
