It’s FERRIS FRIDAY and tomorrow, June 11th marks the 30th Anniversary of the classic 1986 John Hughes comedy, “Ferris Beuller’s Day Off”
The SOLD OUT Ultimate 3-Day Leisure weekend took place during the weekend of May 20-22nd, and included a jam packed schedule that included an 80’s themed High School Spring dance, a 30th Anniversary screening of the film, Q&A’s with cast from the film, bus tours to various shooting locations from the film, in/around Chicago and even a 30th Anniversary parade recreation in Downtown Chicago.
Beyond the Marquee was given VIP Access and was on hand for the entire event from Dawn till Midnight, covering every moment, interviewing all the cast, going behind the scenes of the weekends choice events and more!

“I think the reason why Ferris Bueller’s Day Off resonates so much is because Ferris is really like a superhero in this age of superhero movies, Ferris is a superhero to people who want to take a day off. Maybe if they are in high school, or in college, working a 9-5 job, or trying to figure out what they want to do with their life, or figure out where they’re at and who they are, they just need time off to breathe…and really just take life in. It’s really the concept of being able to go out, and look around you and see life that’s happening, to just really embrace it and acknowledge that the most important thing… is living life”.
