Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Free beer with every ticket + free 'Save Ferris' button badge to the first 15 people who turn up on the night!

Ferris Bueller is a smart high-school student who knows all the angles. Today, he’s decided to take the day off school, and when Ferris takes the day off, so must his friends Cameron and Sloane. But will Ferris’s ingenious scheming finally trip him up? Dean of Students Ed Rooney, until now frustrated that he has never caught his pupil out, smells blood and plans to catch him in the act, and someone else much closer to home is also tired that Ferris always ‘gets away with it’ ...

Director John Hughes made a reputation for himself in the 1980s as a chronicler of teenage life, orchestrating his films as entertainments, with an underlying sympathy for the growing pains of adolescence. ‘Ferris Bueller’ is first and foremost a larger than life comedy, but it still retains Hughes’s compassion for the awkwardness of teenage years.

This 1986 film stars Matthew Broderick, Jeffery Jones, Mia Sara, Alan Ruck [who a few years later would find himself stuck on a bus, with a bomb and a Bullock (Sandra, to be precise)]. Also appearing are [a pre-Dirty Dancing] Jennifer Grey, and an atypical cameo from Charlie Sheen.

The film currently has a score of 7.9 out of 10 from over 197,600 votes on the Internet Movie Database.

Tickets can be bought (here).

Prince Charles Members save £2.50 on this screening.  If you are not a member, maybe it’s time you considered it? At £10 per year, it’s possibly the best value cinema membership in the capital (with a saving of at least £2.50 per movie). The cinema shows a mixture of recent releases and an extensive monthly programme of cult and classic movies. It’s more than likely that there will be a few more Movie Group events at this cinema before the year is out. For more membership details click (here)

(and, no, I'm not on commission, nor do I work for the cinema or know anyone who does :-] )

We will be going for a drink before the movie to discuss, among other things, our favourite all time teen movies.

I will send an e-mail around to all those who have RSVPed shortly before the event with meeting details.

    Hey guys, I love this film and was hoping to come tonight. But I've sadly had to cancel as something has come up at the last minute :-( Hope you all have a great time. Maybe it will come 'round again sometime for the group.

      Hi. Given the number of TV channels showing movies right now, statistically there's a good chance that any well known movie would have been on the small screen recently [with the possible exception of White Christmas :-) ]. It's always going to be cheaper and more convenient to watch stuff at home. It's up to the individual to decide if watching a classic comedy with a live audience on a big screen is worth stepping out for ...

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
