I've got The Lost Boys as one of my choices but need inspiration for a second one please.

You are making me want to have an 80s film night now!

You'll need themed snacks; flakes, Turkish Delight

The Secret of My Success.
The Goonies.

Fabulous films, the best thing about 80's films is that they (almost) all leave you with a massive smile on your face.

Sparklingbrook Sun 25-Oct-15 16:54:06

St Elmo's Fire
The Breakfast Club
Back to the Future
Pretty in Pink
About Last Night

Depends on age of audience though.

The Breakfast Club or Sixteen Candles.

Who is coming OP? If there are kids or teens I would choose Back to the Future, Ferris Bueller's Day Off or perhaps Gremlins <shudder>, otherwise one of the two above.

Oh! If you don't want an American film, what about Local Hero? Great film.

Palomb Sun 25-Oct-15 17:01:04

Definitely the Goonies and Indiana Jones.

Possibly Top Gun but that would depend on the audience..
