Friday Flicks: Groundhog Day

Bill Murray (left) relives the same day over and over in Groundhog Day.

7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 1
$7 / $5 for students with ID
Doors and Varsity Bar 6:30


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) – rottentomatoes.com

7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 8
$7 / $5 for students with ID
Doors and Varsity Bar 6:30


George Roy Hill’s 1969 Western chronicles the mostly true tale of the Hole in the Wall Gang’s last months. Witty pals Butch (Paul Newman) and Sundance (Robert Redford) join the gang in successfully robbing yet another train with their trademark non-lethal style. After the pair rests at the home of Sundance's schoolmarm girlfriend, Etta (Katharine Ross), the Gang robs the same train, but this time, the railroad boss has hired the best trackers in the business to foil the crime. 


After being tailed over rocks and a river gorge, Butch and Sundance decide that maybe it's time to try their luck in Bolivia. Taking Etta with them, they live high on ill-gotten Bolivian gains, but Etta leaves after their white-hatted nemesis portentously arrives. Their luck running out, Butch and Sundance hole up in a barn surrounded by scores of Bolivian soldiers waiting for the pair to make one last run for it. (PG) – rottentomatoes.com
