Movie Night posters will be available; plus, today’s trivia

Eastlake Movie Night poster by Mary Hansen

Kate Dulemba, who has been organizing Saturday’s Eastlake Movie Night, says she’s received many requests for copies of Mary Hansen’s great poster for the event. Yes, Kate says, they will be available at the event and they will be free … but donations are always welcome.

So, don’t be cheap! Help make this event happen by giving them a few bucks for your poster.

Which reminds me: I don’t think I’ve said it for a while but this whole event is FREE! Thanks to the Eastlake Community Council and the sponsors (Melissa Ahlers of Lake Real Estate, Video Quest, Lake Union Mail, the Eastlake Community Council and EastlakeAve.com) who help make it possible.

Today’s “Groundhog Day” trivia (courtesy of the Internet Movie Database): 

  • Bill Murray’s room at the bed and breakfast was actually a set in a warehouse in Cary, Illinois.
  • When Phil Connors plays Sergei Rachmaninoff’s “Rhapsody on a Theme by Paginini” at the piano teacher’s house, that’s actually Bill Murray playing. “He does not read music, but he learned that much of the song by ear,” says the IMDb.
