An Evening with Alan Ruck and Screening of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
Thursday May 2, 2024

The Auditorium Theatre presents a special showing of the John Hughes classic FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF featuring a Q&A with star Alan Ruck (Cameron Frye)! "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." No, it was not Confucius that said that. It was that sage of sages, Ferris Bueller, as played (unforgettably, most would argue) by Matthew Broderick. Sandwiched in between PRETTY IN PINK and SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL, screenwriter John Hughes told a different kind of high school story in FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF, which became the biggest box office hit of his directorial career, grossing just over $70 million in 1986 (that was more than the combined takes of THE BREAKFAST CLUB and WEIRD SCIENCE, his two previous films). Instead of focusing on teenage cliques or young lovers from two different worlds, Hughes instead turned his attention to something nearly everyone does at one time or another: playing hooky. And nobody played it better than Ferris. A limited number of VIP tickets are available that include the best seats in the house along with a post-show photo opportunity with Alan Ruck.
