Groundhog Day – 25th Anniversary Screening!

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.
