Bill Murray Day
And you thought there already was a Bill Murray Day. We figured there should be one too, so we've claimed September 5. Leading up to that evening's world premiere of Murray's latest film, St. Vincent, we'll pay tribute to the man throughout the day with a triple (ahem) bill of three FREE comedy classics: Stripes, Groundhog Day, and Ghostbusters. You never know who may show up for a post-screening Q&A.
Wiseacre underachiever Bill Murray leads a motley crew of dropouts and losers (including Harold Ramis, John Candy and Judge Reinhold) in all manner of parade-ground hijinks in Ivan Reitman's anarchic service comedy.
Bill Murray plays an unpleasant weatherman cursed to relive February 2 on repeat. Groundhog Day's absurd premise and acidic humour gives way to a decidedly optimistic romantic comedy with an edge — in some ways setting the tone for the next two decades of onscreen Murray personas.
Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis star as three misfit parapsychologists who go into business ridding New York City of assorted ghosts and ghouls and become media celebrities in the process. This screening is co-hosted with Jane/Finch Community and Family Centre.
