Another classic summer pastime is big blockbuster movies, so we thought with summer on its way it would be fun to break down some of the most famous and notable garages across movie history.
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
Bueller? Bueller? This 1986 John Hughes classic is memorable for many reasons, not the least of which is the red 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder convertible and the iconic garage where Cameron’s father stores it. This glass-walled garage on the top of a hill brilliantly juxtaposes the man-made beauty of the car (cleaned regularly with diapers) against the natural beauty of the forest below. If you would like a better look at the unique garage and the car itself, there is this early scene in the film [WARNING: mild language] where Ferris desperately tries to convince his friend Cameron to take his father’s expensive car out for a joyride on their day off from school.
If we are going to get technical, Bruce Wayne’s Batcave most definitely qualifies as a notable movie garage. Featured in film and TV as early as the 1960s and as recently as the 2017 blockbuster Justice League, the Batcave has taken on many forms over the years. The one thing that the Batcave always features is awesome technology. The Batmobile, the Batcyle, the Batcopter, and various other gadgets and vehicles that start with the prefix “Bat-“. Storing it all requires a huge amount of space!
This is the easily the least well-known of any of the movie garages on the list, but if you’ve seen 2004’s Primer you will never forget it. Written, directed, and starring Shane Carruth, the film was produced on a shoestring budget of $7,000 and mostly takes place mostly in the main character’s garage workshop. Despite the small budget, the film has big ideas and has amassed an even bigger cult following in the decade since its release. The mind-bending intricate plot concerns a pair of engineers who make a startling discovery regarding an invention in their garage. The ramifications of this discovery could threaten to unravel their friendship, their families, and even their lives. Primer is the rare sci-fi film that is fully grounded in reality, and at a scant 77 minutes, it is well worth your time.
Seinfeld – “The Parking Garage”
Sure, it’s actually from TV and it’s not even a home garage, but the parking garage from the iconic Seinfeld episode “The Parking Garage” is a classic nonetheless. Only a self-proclaimed “show about nothing” could craft an entire television episode that takes place while the cast wanders around a parking garage lost and looking for their car. To add further stress to the situation, Kramer is lugging around a new air conditioner, Jerry has to use the bathroom, Elaine has a goldfish that needs out of its plastic bag, and George needs to pick his parents up for their anniversary dinner. It’s a classic episode from one of the greatest television shows of all time. It had to go on the list, even if it is included mostly as a technicality!
