Groundhog Day (rinse, repeat) at the Guild Cinema
Wednesday & Thursday, February 1 & 2 – 3:45, 6:00 & 8:15 pm
Directed by Harold Ramis – 1993 – 102m. A Double Feature with 2 movies for the price of one! A nod of thanks (wink, wink) to the Seattle Film Festival!
One of the acknowledged classics of American comedy, this is the hilarious & sweet story of a TV weatherman Phil Connors (a dang good Bill Murray), who is forced to live the same Feb. 2 over and over again until he gains some karmic — and comic — insight into his life.
“The most endearing film of both men’s careers, a sweet and amusing surprise package.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
“When it comes to existential drama comedies about self realizations in a fantastic setting, [it] is right up there with films like “Her” and “Eternal Sunshine.” – Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
“While Murray’s deadpan putdowns and dry dismissals of provincial peccadilloes are the comic highlights, Groundhog Day is no supercilious rip of small-town U.S.A.” – Duane Byrge, Hollywood Reporter
The Guild Cinema is located at 3450 Central Avenue NE, in the Nob Hill area.
