Movie Series Shows “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”
The popular film series, Moonlight Movies, continues at Steele Indian School Park in June. Hosted by District 4 Councilman Tom Simplot, the next film in the series is the classic of high school high jinks, “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” screening at 8 p.m. Saturday, June 25. The Moonlight Movies are free, outdoor films, held at the park at Third Street and Indian School Road.
“As Ferris said, ‘Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it,’” noted Simplot. “So take some time to relax and join us for a wonderful summer movie.”
“Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” follows the troublemaking young teen of the title, as he skips school before the start of summer. In tow are his girlfriend Sloane and worrying friend Cameron. The trio dodges cranky Principal Rooney, enjoys a baseball game at Wrigley Field, catches the view at the top of the Sears Tower and visits the Art Institute of Chicago.
Moonlight Movies 2005 will conclude in July, showcasing the great American pastime with the baseball movie “The Sandlot”, rated PG. “The Sandlot” plays at 8 p.m. Saturday, July 23, also at Steele Indian School Park.
