About This MovieToggle

Well nuts! Ferris Bueller didn’t reach the tipping point in time. Unfortunately, it won’t be showing. We’ll get ’em next time!

Life moves pretty fast; if you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it. So slow down for an evening with the crowned prince of high school leisure, Ferris Bueller (they think he’s a righteous dude), at the Colonial on Thursday, September 12, 2019 at 7:30PM.

School’s back in session, and we could all use a refresher course in cutting class.

Step 1: fake an illness
Step 2: falsify your girlfriend’s grandmother’s death
Step 3: “borrow” your friend’s dad’s Ferrari
Step 4: dine at a 5-star restaurant
Step 5: crash a parade

I don’t know about you, but that’s EXACTLY how I used to cut class in my day. Kids today, I tell you.
