OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

There were a lot of things about the ’80s that weren’t necessarily cool (parachute pants, anyone?), but the movies that came out in that otherwise-awkward decade were pretty awesome. Exhibit A: John Hughes’ comingof-age story Sixteen Candles.

See the Brat Pack classic 7 p.m. Tuesday at Harkins Bricktown Cinemas, 150 E. Reno Ave. Call 231-4747 or visit harkinstheatres.com.
