    Name: Friday Flicks at The Varsity: Groundhog Day
    Date: February 1, 2019
    Time: 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM CST
    Event Description:

    Bill Murray (left) relives the same day over and over in ?Groundhog Day,? showing at The Varsity on Feb. 1.

    Back at The Varsity for the second time, 1993?s ?Groundhog Day? stars Bill Murray as Phil, a TV weatherman working for a local station in Pennsylvania but convinced that national news stardom is in his grasp. Phil displays a charm and wit on camera that evaporates the moment the red light goes off; he is bitter, appallingly self-centered, and treats his co-workers with contempt, especially his producer Rita (Andie MacDowell) and cameraman Larry (Chris Elliot). On February 2, 1992, the team is sent on an assignment Phil loathes: the annual Groundhog Day festivities in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, where the groundhog determines the length of winter. A freak snowstorm strands Phil in Punxsutawney, and where every morning he wakes up, he seems to be living the same day over again. The more Phil relives the same day, the more he's forced to look at other people's lives, and something unusual happens: he begins to care. (PG for some thematic elements)
