So you want to go to a movie—but check out the prices at corporate movie theaters: twelve bucks for a ticket and seven for popcorn. And the only options are Ghost Rider and some adventure flick with The Rock. Oh, mediocrity. So what to do? Go old school and head to a local cinema, the Bay Theatre in Seal Beach, where the popcorn is drenched in nostalgia, the projector still crackles, and this weekend, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off illuminates the silver screen. Bueller...Bueller...Bueller. It’s time to head back into the '80s and watch Ferris, his girlfriend, and his best friend chased by the evil mustachioed principal. It’s time to watch a Ferrari get destroyed and remember when going to the movies was fun without abusing your wallet.
