Time To Twist And Shout: Wrigley Field To Host "Ferris Bueller" Viewing Next Week
"Ferris Bueller's Day Off" will be the "first movie ever shown at Wrigley Field on Saturday, Oct. 1," according to Jamie Sotonoff of the Illinois DAILY HERALD. Groupon is sponsoring the event and selected the film, which "contains a famous scene at Wrigley Field." The movie "will be seen on multiple screens around the perimeter of the field." A Groupon spokesperson said that the night "also will feature a Guinness World Records attempt to have the most people sing 'Danke Shoen' -- a song Ferris sings in the movie -- and there'll be cast look-a-likes and other surprises" (Illinois DAILY HERALD, 9/20). Groupon said that tickets to the film, "marking its 25th anniversary, will be sold at Groupon.com, Cubs.com and the Wrigley Field box office" beginning today. Admission "costs $10 for bleachers, $25 for lawn seating and $75 for VIP lawn seating with food and drink at the stadium's Captain Morgan Club" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 9/20).
