Four days until Eastlake Movie Night! Plus: movie trivia!

The Second Annual Eastlake Movie Night is coming this Saturday. This year’s feature is “Groundhog Day,” the classic comedy with Bill Murray.

The show starts at dusk on the grass at Roger’s Playfield. Bring your blanket or low-slung lawn chairs and settle in for a great evening. Or bring dinner and make an evening of it. There are a few tables around the edge of the playfield if you feel the need for a stable surface to dine on.

One note: The playfield does get watered so it’s likely to be a little damp. Bring something to sit on that will stay dry.

Kate Dulemba is organizing the event. Mary Hansen did the movie night poster (which is reproduced here). See our recent post about Mary. 

Today’s “Groundhog Day” trivia (according to the Internet Movie Database): The movie wasn’t actually filmed in Punxsutawney, Penn., but in Woodstock, Ill. The IMDb says there’s a plaque in Woodstock that says “Bill Murray stepped here” and marks the place where he constantly steps off the curb in the film.
