Groupon Hosts ‘Ferris Bueller’ Movie Night At Wrigley

CHICAGO (CBS) — To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Chicago film classic “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” the daily deal site Groupon is playing host to an outdoor screening of the movie at Wrigley Field.

Three giant screens will be set up on the infield on Oct. 1, and ticket-holders will be invited to spread out their blankets on the lawn for “a night of picnicking, music, and movie magic,” according to Groupon.

The daily deal site is, of course, offering a deal on tickets:

  • For $10, you get one ticket in the bleachers.
  • For $25, you get one ticket in the outfield lawn.
  • For $75, you get a VIP pre-show package that includes: One ticket for the VIP section of the outfield lawn and two hours of food and drink at the Captain Morgan Club, starting at 5 p.m.

Guests arriving before 7 p.m. can take part in a historic attempt to top the world record for Most People Singing in the Round.

The gates open at 5:30 p.m. and the movie begins at 7:30 p.m.

    The price that they have set for this event is ridiculous. I understand part of the lure of the event is to experience Wrigley Field, but to think $25 for lawn seats is a fair price is ignorance. A family of 4 should not have to spend $100 to sit on the grass in October to watch a 25 year old film. Hopefully people took advantage of the Movies in the Park series which is the correct price – free.
