Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?
When I watched Ferris Bueller's idyllic ditch day for the first time as a teen growing up in the same Chicago suburbia immortalized by John Hughes I related more to the straitlaced best friend Cameron, who was destined to get busted for taking his dad's fabulous car downtown. Looking back now, I wish I would have paid more attention to Ferris's main message: "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." And I can think of no better place to honor that timeless advice than Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
The Denver Film Society will present a twentieth-anniversary celebration screening as part of its Save Ferris Fundraiser tonight. The event a benefit for the nonprofit's programs, such as Film on the Rocks, Starz FilmCenter and the Starz Denver International Film Festival costs $50 and begins at 6:30 with drinks in the Shiprock Room (overlooking all of Red Rocks), then a boxed dinner with live music headlined by Rubber Planet and, finally, a screening of Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Make your reservations by Monday July 31 by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 303-595-3456, extension 30.
Thu., Aug. 2, 6:30 p.m.
