Garden Movie Series: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
May 28 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree
The Four Columns is glad to host a summer movie series in our garden. Each even will start at 8PM, and feature an outdoor cocktail bar with wine and beer, as well as carefully crafted cocktails designed to complement the featured film. Admission is free.
In celebration of the start of summer, and in the spirit of the warm-hearted fun of youth and uncertainty, we will kick off our garden movie series for 2017 with Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. According to Rotten Tomatoes: Teenaged Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) is a legend in his own time thanks to his uncanny skill at cutting classes and getting away with it. Intending to make one last grand duck-out before graduation, Ferris calls in sick, “borrows” a Ferrari, and embarks on a one-day bacchanal through the streets of Chicago. Dogging Ferris’ trail at every turn is high-school principal Rooney (Jeffrey Jones), determined to catch Bueller in the act of class-cutting. Writer/director John Hughes once again tries to wed satire, slapstick, and social commentary, as Ferris Bueller’s Day Off starts like a house afire and goes on to make “serious” points about status-seeking and casual parental cruelties. It brightens up considerably in the last few moments, when Ferris’ tattletale sister (Jennifer Grey) decides to align herself with her merry prankster sibling. Join us in the Garden starting at 8PM for a drink and movie.
