Film on the Rocks announces Ferris Bueller's Day Off as 'favorite John Hughes Film'

Back when the Film on the Rocks schedule was announced, fans got a chance to select their favorite John Hughes film for a showing. Well, the fans spoke and overwhelmingly they chose Ferris Bueller's Day Off over The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles. Ferris grabbed nearly half the vote, leaving the other two to split the other half. So Wednesday, if you aren't planning on attending the Westword Music Showcase awards show, head up to the Rocks to enjoy the best fake sick day ever. Accompanying the film, you'll also get some music from the ever-awesome Ian Cooke and Zach Heckendorf, a local seventeen-year-old guitar wunderkind. Buy tickets early, though -- this one will almost certainly sell out.
