Crowds Will Pack Wrigley In October Afterall
The John Hughes classic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off will be screened at the inaugural Movie Night at Wrigley Field this coming October 1. For the three of you who haven’t seen the movie, well, you have my pity. One of the stops on Ferris’ epic day off from school is a trip to Wrigley to see a Cubs game with his girlfriend Sloan and best friend Cameron.
So yeah, the baseball that will be seen at Wrigley took place in a classic 80s movie, but still, this is the closest Cubs fans will get to seeing any kind of October baseball in their lifetime.
The prices to attend Movie Night at Wrigley Field border on the outrageous. $25 for lawn seats and $10 for bleachers ($75 for VIP lawn seating with food and drink at the stadium’s Captain Morgan Club isn’t that bad) to see a movie from 1986 in a stadium that smells like a urinal cake? Granted there’s going to be a Danke Schoen sing-along for everyone in attendance, but for that much money they should recreate the Twist and Shout parade scene with everyone taking turns playing Ferris Bueller, if only for the chance of nailing Sloan. Loved her back in the day.
