For the sixth summer running, Park Your Cinema, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC’s) series of open-air cinema projections, welcomes the public at the Great Lawn of the Stavros Niarchos Park.
This year, for the selection of films addressed to adult viewers, the SNFCC inaugurates its partnership with the Thessaloniki International Film Festival (TIFF), the country’s most prestigious film institution.
This summer, therefore, when our need to laugh is greater than ever, the TIFF presents a series of films that prove that comedy is, after all, a very serious matter.
Groundhog Day (1993):
One of the classic comedies of the 90s, Harold Ramis’ Groundhog Day tells the tale of an egocentric television presenter, who travels to a small town to cover their annual Groundhog Day festivities. While there, he realizes he is experiencing the same day over and over again, a fact that only he is aware of. Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell star in a film whose plot served as the inspiration for dozens of subsequent movies and TV productions.
Directed by: Harold Ramis, Screenplay: Harold Ramis, Danny Rubin
Starring: Bill Murray, Andie MacDowell, Chris Elliott
