Few high-school students have skipped school—and gotten away with it—quite like Ferris Bueller. In 1986, writer-director John Hughes turned a fresh-faced Matthew Broderick into a lovable truant who skips school and convinces his girlfriend Sloane (Mia Sara) and best friend Cameron (Alan Ruck) to join him in a Windy City romp.
In Bueller spirit, why not shirk midweek obligations for a night at the movies? Boise Classic Movies gives longtime fans and newbies alike the chance to catch Ferris Bueller's Day Off on the big screen at the Egyptian Theatre, Thursday, May 9.
Watch Bueller and company attend a Cubs game, take a trip through a swanky Chicago art museum and joyride in a 1961 Ferrari 250GT California, all before Bueller inserts himself in the middle of a raucous parade—just one of many iconic scenes from the movie. Will curmudgeonly Dean of Students Edward Rooney (Jeffrey Jones) catch the gang in the act? Find out only by watching the film.
Tickets cost $9 on the Boise Classic Movies website, or $11 at the Egyptian box office the night of the show. Beer and wine will be available for purchase for 21-and-older moviegoers. Could you ask for anything more on a Thursday night? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?
