Groundhog Day

Friday, February 2nd at 9pm!

Revisit (or discover) this iconic film whose title has become a cultural meme for living through the same life events over and over again. The story concerns Phil (Bill Murray), a jaded and cynical weatherman who is out to cover the annual emergence of the groundhog from its hole in a small Pennsylvania town. He gets caught in a blizzard that he didn’t predict and finds himself trapped in a time warp. He is doomed to relive the same day over and over again until he gets it right. Smart, sweet, and inventive, Groundhog Day highlights Murray’s dramatic gifts while still leaving plenty of room for laughs. The ensemble cast includes Andi MacDowell as Phil’s bristling colleague turned romantic interest, and Chris Elliott as a snarky cameraman. Directed by Harold Ramis. All tickets $11, Naro ticket books are valid. (1993, PG, 1h 36m)

Since arriving as a mild success in 1993, Groundhog Day has gradually achieved the status of beloved. The American Film Institute rates it No.34 on its list of all-time funniest movies, and it’s a story that bears frequent repeat viewings.” – Michael Booth, Denver Post

“No film has understood [Bill Murray] better than Harold Ramis’ brilliant Groundhog Day, a hilarious and unexpectedly profound comedy that breaks him down and reveals every conceivable facet of his personality.” – Scott Tobias, AV Club
