The LexGo Totally Awesome '80s Film Festival continues Wednesday with Risky Business (1983), starring onetime Louisvillian Tom Cruise as a teenager having a good time while his parents are out of town.
Make plans to go to the screening, 7:15 p.m. at The Kentucky Theatre. Admission is only $6.
Throughout the festival there will be contests, giveaways and more.
Hundreds of folks have turned out for the festival's first two movies. If you haven't come to a screening, there are only two chances left.
The festival ends March 27 with The Breakfast Club (1985).
You can read more about Risky Business and its place in pop culture on Sunday at LexGo.com and in print in the Living Sunday section.
Let's start thinking about a second edition of the LexGo Totally Awesome '80s Film Festival.
There are no guarantees it will happen, but if it does, we want to know: Which 1980s movies would you love to see on the big screen?
Do you want to see another Cruise movie, Top Gun (1986)? How about another John Hughes classic like Some Kind of Wonderful (1987)? Or perhaps you're itching to go on an adventure with the boys of Stand By Me (1986).
Tell us your picks. Email them to firstname.lastname@example.org (subject line: "LexGo film fest 2.0"); tweet us a direct message (@LexGoKy) or with the hashtag #totallyawesome80s; or post a comment on our Facebook page, Facebook.com/lexgo.
The deadline is noon Tuesday.
We'll publish some of the picks next Friday in Weekender.
