    The 25th anniversary of one Chicago's most iconic films is getting a fitting tribute.

    Groupon is sponsoring a 7:30 p.m. showing of "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" on Oct. 1 at Wrigley Field.

    The Groupon deal, which became available Tuesday, offers $10 bleacher seats, $25 outfield lawn seats and a $75 VIP package that includes a special section in the outfield and a drink and food package at the Captain Morgan Club.

    Three 30-foot screens will be placed along the lip of the infield to show the movie.

    Lawn chairs will not be allowed inside the stadium, although blankets and picnic baskets filled with outside food will be welcomed.

    Portions of the movie actually take place at Wrigley Field, which should add a surreal touch to the proceedings.

    Earlier arrivers will participate in an sing-a-long of  "Danke Schoen," which Bueller's character sang in the movie.

    If the weather isn't cooperating, the movie will be shown on October 2.
