It’s Time to Save Ferris Beuller Once Again!

Still as hilariously irresistible as the day it was released in 1986, FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF returns to cinemas for two days only this May, just in time for its 30th anniversary.

ferrisFathom Events and Turner Classic Movies (TCM) present John Hughes’ venerated comedy as part of the TCM Big Screen Classics series. Audiences can take the day off to join Ferris, Sloane and Cameron in more than 650 theaters nationwide for two screenings each day: 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. local time.

Adding even more fun to the 30th anniversary celebration, the event includes special interviews with John Hughes and other cast members about the movie, and TCM host Ben Mankiewicz will present all-new commentary for FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF both before and after the feature.

Matthew Broderick stars as a delightfully charming high school student who, with his girlfriend Sloane (Mia Sara) and best bud Cameron (Alan Ruck), ditches school to enjoy one perfect day as a kid with no responsibilities. The beloved comedy about Ferris’ wild adventures in the Windy City during a single, glorious day off continues to be enjoyed, quoted and revered 30 years after its theatrical debut.

Tickets to TCM Big Screen Classics: FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF can be purchased online from Fathom Events.

While you wait for this special event, enjoy the next title in Fathom’s TCM Big Screen Classics series with Marlon Brando’s incendiary performance in “On the Waterfront” in theaters this April 24 and 27.

In addition to the special theatrical screenings, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is also available on Digital HD.
