The record heat wave is over, and the cooler weather beckons us from our homes and into the outdoors. What better way to spend a summer evening than by sitting on the grass in Brooklyn Park and watching the classic 1980’s movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off?
Speaking of knowing how to spend beautiful days, Ferris Bueller is a high school senior with more important things to do with his day than spend it in school. Instead, he ditches class with his friends and they explore Chicago while his parents believe he’s home sick. For everyone who has ever called in sick to work in order to spend the day gallivanting in the sunshine, you’ll be able to appreciate the rebellion of Ferris Bueller on his day off. Parents, please be advised the film is rated PG-13 for strong language.
“Movies in the Park” is a free parks program developed to bring community members and neighbors together for a great summer activity in their neighborhood parks.
The movie will begin at dusk (between 8 pm and 8:45 pm) and is weather permitting. A rainout will be called by 5 pm and will be posted at the park. Prior to each movie, attendees will be greeted with entertainment that begins at 6:30 pm.
