This is like, totally, killer.

The Gene Siskel Film Center is so going retro and bringing back the '80s June 1. Radical, right?

Ten of the most righteous films of the era will be shown in 33mm prints, except for the 4K digital restoration of like, "Raiders of the Lost Ark." And to make this series even more tubular? Saturdays have a double film discount. That's like $7 for general admission. Take a chill pill.

No way. Way.

On the schedule are John Hughes seminal teen flicks "Breakfast Club" and "Ferris Bueller's Day Off;" Two from the canon of Arnold Schwarzenegger, "The Terminator" and "Conan the Barbarian;" "Raiders of the Lost Ark;" "Back to the Future (finally a place to sport those Nike Hover shoes); "They Live," "Repo Man," dancing primers "Footloose" and "Dirty Dancing;" and finally, "The Right Stuff."

Tickets are on sale now.
