If you’ve forgotten how ridiculously handsome Jake Ryan is and how you never fully understood his attraction to Samantha, then it’s time for a refresher course at Alamo Drafthouse. Tuesday is Girlie Night and they’re showing Sixteen Candles. Relive headgear, Long Duk Dong and a time when John Cusack was cast as a nerd. Molly Ringwald plays Samantha Baker whose life is THE WORST — her sister’s getting married, her little brother’s a worm, Anthony Michael Hall won’t leave her alone and to top it off, her entire family forgot her 16th birthday. But in the end there’s cake, a rich kid and a kiss, so it’s pretty much all worth it. Tickets are $10 and the show starts at 7:30 p.m. at Alamo Drafthouse, 100 S. Central Expressway, #14, Richardson.
