Open Air Cinema returns to Malvern to show cult classic

The story of a high school slacker which turned into one of the hit moves of the 1980s is set to be screened in Malvern’s Priory Park next month.

Malvern Hills District Council has joined forces with Malvern Theatres to host the showing of the iconic film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, in the park on Sunday 21 August from 7.30pm. It will be shown on a large outdoor screen and those attending are encouraged to bring their own picnic, blankets, chairs, and of course, the popcorn.

The film stars Matthew Broderick as slacker Ferris who bunks off school for the day and embarks on an adventure involving a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder. It was one of the top grossing films of 1986 taking more than $70 million at the box office.

Cllr Phil Grove, Leader of Malvern Hills District Council said: “We are delighted to be hosting another cinema evening as part of our outdoor film season. These events are really popular and it’s great to hold something different in the town for people to enjoy.”

The Film is certificate 12A with tickets now available from Malvern Theatres box office and online costing £8.50 per adult, £5 concessions. Refreshments will also be available from Malvern Theatres.
