Bueller’s Day Off is a 1986 American teen coming-of-age comedy film written and directed by John Hughes.

The film follows high school senior Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick), who decides to skip school and spend the day in downtown Chicago. Accompanied by his girlfriend Sloane Peterson (Mia Sara) and his best friend Cameron Frye (Alan Ruck), he creatively avoids his school’s Dean of Students Edward Rooney (Jeffrey Jones), his resentful sister Jeanie (Jennifer Grey), and his parents. During the film, Bueller frequently breaks the fourth wall by speaking directly to the camera to explain to the audience his techniques and thoughts.

Hughes wrote the screenplay in less than a week and shot the film—on a budget of $6 million—over several months in late 1985. Featuring many famous Chicago landmarks including the then Sears Tower and the Art Institute of Chicago, the film was Hughes’ love letter to the city: “I really wanted to capture as much of Chicago as I could. Not just in the architecture and landscape, but the spirit.”

Shooting for Ferris Bueller’s Day Off began in Chicago just after the Labor Day weekend, on Monday, September 9, 1985. In late October 1985, the production would move to Los Angeles. Shooting for Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ ended on Friday, November 22, 1985. The Von Steuben Day Parade scene was filmed on September 28, 1985, which was a Saturday. The majority of the film was shot in and around New Trier High School’s Freshman campus in Northfield, formerly known as New Trier West, in the fall of 1985. Scenes were also filmed at several locations in downtown Chicago and Winnetka (Ferris’s home, his mother’s real estate office, etc.). Many of the other scenes were filmed in Northbrook, Illinois, including at Glenbrook North High School, on School Drive, the famous long curvy street on which Glenbrook North and neighboring Maple Middle School are situated. Many students at the school served as extras. Most of the school’s interior shots, though, were filmed at the shuttered Maine North High School. The exterior of Ferris’s house is located at 4160 Country Club Drive, Long Beach, California.

The modernist house of Cameron Frye is located at 370 Beech Street, Highland Park, Illinois 60035

    The high school inside was filmed in Ralston,Nebraska. Part of Omaha,Nebraska. They used the Junior High School in Ralston for some filming of dancing down the hallway. I worked security during the filming there.

    Ah yes 80’s movies. Back when they knew how to make movies. Not all the liberal politically correct bull shit they have been making for awhile now.

    Great job Herve! So much attention to detail. I thought I did well on film location videos. Not compared to you. You went way over and beyond! 🙂

  35. Crotch Knocker X on July 2, 2022 at 11:46 am

    did you skip school to make this vid?

  36. christschool on July 2, 2022 at 11:48 am

    This video needs more views. I love that the movies from my youth are still touching generations beyond mine. I was barely a freshman in college when the movie came out and my girlfriend wanted to go see it. I don’t remember being overly impressed with it at the time (I didn’t like the Ferris character), but the film has aged well and is a neat time capsule.

    Sad thing is the Chicago 1985 pics look better than the Chicago 2011 ones.

  41. Luke Skywalker on July 2, 2022 at 11:56 am

    It would be helpful if you told us where these locations were and a little about them.

  42. Dave Bowman on July 2, 2022 at 11:57 am

    I miss Chicago… this brought it all back to me.

  43. G B on July 2, 2022 at 11:59 am
