Here are the ticket prices:

- Bleachers: $10
- Lawn seating: $25 (blankets allowed, but no chairs)
- VIP lawn seating including food and drink at Wrigley's Captain Morgan Club: $75

The screening, which coincides with Ferris' 25th anniversary, will be screened onto three 30-foot screens set up along the the infield lip frame, an attempt to set a a world record sing-a-long to Wayne Newton's "Danke Schoen" and cast look-alikes, unless Groupon can pull Alan Ruck and Mia Sara from obscurity.

So it's essentially the Wrigley Field experience, minus the baseball. Now go brush up on your Wayne Newton.
