Are you a fan of the 80’s? Do you love the clothes, the big hair, the bad make up, and the electrifying music that reaches into your soul and pulls out the bad moves you never even thought you had? Well then why weren’t you at the Gusman Center for the performing Arts last night for: Flickin Summer Movies? The featured film was Pretty in Pink! Yes you heard me, it’s the best of John Hughes brought to life on a huge screen on top the stage were millions of plays have had their standing ovations, and thousands of musicians have touched the heart of many. After the movie the stage was transformed into the 80’s retro glam with a DJ breaking down beats packing the stage as they gave-away cool prizes to the best dressed and best moves. Now they say in Miami, “One needs to build a crowd” boy is that true, you nearly have to take them out of their comfort zone to get them to an event, this place should have been sardine packed last night. You have no idea what a gem lays in the heart of Downtown Miami, this place is genuinely beautiful, and not only was it almost steps away from being closed back in late March, but the people working to keep it open are just as beautiful and kind. I had the pleasure of speaking briefly with Margaret Lake who is the Director of the Gusman Center, whom not only was dressed very chic and trendy in her 80’s get up, but was kind enough to hand me an extra ticket to see the upcoming Flickin Summer Movies. Next up: Sixteen Candles, then The Breakfast Club, followed by the best movie ever made, wait for it… Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Tickets are on sale for $10. Support the arts people, support the Gusman! Now, who’s coming with me?
