Being exactly a month out from summer, the temptation to cut class or call in sick to work is only growing with each temperate and sun-soaked day. While the rest of the world toils away, you’d probably like nothing more than to devise an elaborate scheme to set aside your responsibilities so you can steal a luxury automobile, pose as the Sausage King Of Chicago, catch a foul ball, go to an art museum, lead a parade, get the girl, and make it home before anyone notices you were gone. What a coincidence! We’re showing a movie that’s kind of like that.
On Thursday, June 16, join us at Times Cinema for a 30th anniversary screening of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. The 1986 comedy was the world’s formal introduction to a fresh-faced Matthew Broderick and remains his most memorable role. The timeless and oh-so-quotable film will start at 10 p.m. Yeah, we know that’s pretty late for a weeknight, but as Ferris famously said, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
