The two actresses greeted fans at the Paramount Theatre in Austin prior to a question-and-answer session about the 1985 film. Their appearance was in anticipation of a series of planned screenings for the film that will hit cinemas across America next week (begs23Mar15).

The remastered movie, which will be shown at select theaters on 26 and 31 March (15), will feature interviews with Sheedy and her co-stars Judd Nelson and Anthony Michael Hall.

Ringwald recently told America's Today show she's amazed the film is still a hit 30 years after its initial release: "I always loved the script, and I loved the movie, but I never imagined that we would be talking about it 30 years later."
