Groundhog Day – 25th Anniversary Screening!

“I wake up every day, right here, right in Punxsutawney, and it’s always February 2nd, and there’s nothing I can do about it.”

Is there anything else we’d be playing as a Friday Late Night Movie on Groundhog Day (February 2) than… a 25th Anniversary Screening of, uh, GROUNDHOG DAY?!? Of course not! Bill Murray, Andie MacDowell, Chris Elliott, and a very large, furry, meteorologically-aware rodent star in Harold Ramis’ very, very meta sci-fi romance.

Ironically, given the theme of the film, this never gets old. Winning performances, and respect for the comedic value of the script delivers laughs every time.” (Empire Magazine)

“Smart, sweet, and inventive, GROUNDHOG DAY highlights Murray’s dramatic gifts while still leaving plenty of room for laughs.” (Rotten Tomatoes)

GROUNDHOG DAY (Harold Ramis, 1993 / 101 mins / PG) A narcissistic TV weatherman, along with his attractive-but-distant producer and mawkish cameraman, is sent to report on Groundhog Day in the small town of Punxsutawney, where he finds himself repeating the same day over and over.

Little Shop of Horrors

“Feed me, Seymour. Feed me all night long.” Based on Alan Menken and Howard Ashman‘s 1982 off-Broadway musical, director Frank Oz‘s Little Shop of Horrors takes its own fleshy bite out of Roger Corman‘s original B-movie (1960’s The Little Shop of Horrors, which featured a very young Jack Nicholson) and waters it down with a… Continue Reading

Ghostbusters (1984)

“There is no Dana. Only Zuul.” Ivan Reitman‘s original GHOSTBUSTERS remains one of the most defining blockbusters of the 1980s, and features standout performances from an all-star, A-list cast that includes Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Sigourney Weaver, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis, and a ghost that gets off on sliming unsuspecting victims.
