“Bueller?… Bueller?… Bueller?”

Many of us (who weren’t born in the ’90s or 2000s) remember growing up in a time where a lot of the influence to be something or someone came from the movies. I’m not talking about being superheroes or being vigilantes, but the ultimate thing all of us wanted to be: the cool guy, the lucky girl, the reluctant introvert that breaks out to become the man/woman he’s always wanted to be. A lot of us got that impression from films such as The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles, pretty much everything that made the ’80s so great. We just recently celebrated the 30th anniversary of an installation into the Brat Pack saga not too long ago, Pretty in Pink, and now, another great work of John Hughes has hit the dirty thirty, and it’s time to party!

Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies and Paramount Pictures bring the 1986 classic film, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, to the big screen for a one-time event! Starring a young incredible cast of talented actors such as Matthew Broderick, Alan Ruck, Mia Sara, Jeffrey Jones, Jennifer Grey, and many, many other names, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off set the tone not just for the ’80s, but for cinema, henceforth, in creating ways to break up the monotony of dry humor and droning scenes by best utilizing a mechanic many moviegoers know as “Breaking the fourth wall”. During this special two-day extravaganza, the John Hughes’s cult classic will be presented with specially produced commentary from Turner Classic Movies host Ben Mankiewicz, and also include special interviews with the cast and John Hughes about casting Matthew Broderick in the iconic role of Ferris Bueller.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off 6

If you’ve never seen this iconic movie, here’s the synopsis:

Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) has an uncanny skill at cutting classes and getting away with it. Intending to make one last duck-out before graduation, Ferris calls in sick, “borrows” a Ferrari, and embarks on a one-day journey through the streets of Chicago. On Ferris’ trail is high school principal Rooney (Jeffrey Jones), determined to catch him in the act.
