Ferris’s Room tracks Toronto artist Sarah Keenlyside as she travels to Chicago to recreate Ferris Bueller’s iconic bedroom as part of celebrations for the 30th anniversary of John Hughes’s classic comedy. Director Ryan Mains documents Sarah’s process as she tracks down replicas of Ferris’s prized possessions, packs up her car for the cross-border trip, and works against the clock to get Ferris’s Room ready in time for the big day. Along the way, she faces unexpected challenges, meets super fans who keep the spirit of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off alive, and reveals how art (whether it’s a nostalgic installation or a lighthearted film) brings us together.

The traditional home of the Chicago Cubs shows up briefly in Ferris Bueller’s Day off when Ferris manages to catch a foul ball on live TV, barely escaping Principal Rooney’s sight. Built in 1914, the stadium went through modern renovations starting in 2009 and looked a bit different by the time Ferris’s Room was shot. Keep an eye out for “Save Ferris” written across the stadium’s iconic marquee next time you watch the film.

Glenbrook North High School isn’t just used as various school exteriors in the film, it’s John Hughes’ alma mater! Hughes used Glenbrook North first for The Breakfast Club, so he needed some tricks to re-use the school for Ferris. The entrance where Ferris poses as Sloane’s dad is actually Glenbrook’s Center for the Performing Arts entrance rather than the proper front of the school.

Known in the 80s as the Sears Tower, this marvel of engineering was the world’s tallest building for nearly 25 years. During Ferris Fest, dummies were set up recreating the iconic “Anything is peaceful from 1,353 feet” pose. Nowadays interested fans can get an even more impressive view of Chicago thanks to four-foot glass ledges installed on the tower’s Skydeck in 2009.

The Ben Rose House, designed in 1953 by A. James Speyer and David Haid, is considered an architecturally significant part of Highland Park, Illinois, and is the perfect icon to stand in place of Cameron’s unseen, intimidating father. The original homeowners were quite a bit like Cameron’s dad as well, creating the adjoining pavilion to the house just to show off their exotic sportscar collection. The house still stands in its original configuration with some additions hidden below and in the woods around it.

The Plaza adjacent to the Richard J. Daley Center hosted Ferris Fest’s parade reenactment, allowing more room for music and dancing. The square itself is quite picturesque, featuring a Picasso statue. In fact, it looks so good it has been featured in films like The Blues Brothers, The Dark Knight and The Fugitive.
