Park Your Cinema: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986) - Εικόνα

Summer at the SNFCC and the screenings at the Great Lawn continue: The well-established Park Your Cinema series renews its cooperation with the Thessaloniki International Film Festival for a second year, presenting the films selected for our adult viewers. Our date is on for unforgettable cinematic moments under the stars!

Looking back on the years that shaped us and experiences we all share, the cozy, welcoming darkness of the movies is ever-present, like a big, shared embrace that fits us all inside. Cinema is part of our coming-of-age tale, of each one’s personal history. Its images are interwoven with those of our own lives; the fictional tales of the films we grew up with merge our personal myths with those of others, the people we consider “our own,” our friends, members of the “tribe” in which we choose to belong. 

And through the years, as “going to the movies” transformed over many generations of spectators from mere recreation to something of a “social ritual,” cinema in a way taught us how to mature, at times making us wonder whether the most defining coming-of-age story was the one we experienced ourselves, or some other that we saw on the big screen. 

This summer, in the warm, welcoming darkness of the open sky of the SNFCC, we will be reliving together some of the stories we grew up with, stories that remind us what it means to be young, then or now or forever, the way only great cinema can.

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986)
Ferris Bueller is incredibly talented in ditching school without getting caught. Planning to enjoy one final day off before graduation, he fakes sickness, “borrows” a Ferrari and hits the roads of Chicago. However, the school’s headmaster is on his trail, determined to catch him red-handed. A movie featuring a teeenager refusing to grow up, for whom a single day away from the constraints of school becomes a synonym of freedom.
