It’s that time of year again! February 2nd is Groundhog Day and to celebrate The Producers are inviting you to relive your favourite film again and again for yet another screening of the hilarious 1990s comedy Groundhog Day in Dublin’s The Sugar Club.
Drink “Punxsutawney Punch”, eat pizza and join Phil Connors as he relives his worst and our favourite day.
Bill Murray plays Phil Connors, an egotistical Pittsburgh weatherman reluctantly sent to cover a story about a weather forecasting “rat” who shares his name (the adorable and beloved groundhog Punxsutawney Phil) for the fourth year in a row. Phil hopes to get in and out of the small town as soon as possible, but a blizzard strands him overnight and on awaking the ‘following’ day he discovers that it’s Groundhog Day again, and again, and again.
First he uses this to his advantage, then comes the realization that he is doomed to spend the rest of eternity in Punxsutawney celebrating Groundhog Day as if the previous 24 hours never happened and he is the only one who knows. Murray is hilarious as the sarcastic, mean spirited newsman who begins to re-examine his life and vows to win the heart of Rita (Andie MacDowell).
Tickets to Groundhog Day €7.50/€8.50 at www.eventbrite.ie
Doors 7.30pm, screening 8.30pm.
