More often than not, we here at the Muskegon Channel like to use the platform to show you the who, what, where, why and how around Muskegon to get things done. Where things are going on that will have an impact in your life, our community and how there will hopefully be a long term benefit from what's happening. This however, is not one of those times. :)
This time, it's amusement. Pure and simple. Tom Bitson got a hold of me the other day and said that The Plaza 1&2 had something special planned for Groundhog Day and wondered if I could stop by. So....since Celebration Cinema has never once said they couldn't help me with something I had going on, be it a donation for a charity thing or enough popcorn to feed an army...I figured I'd return the favor. Celebration Cinema does a LOT for the communities they have theaters in, including the Celebrated Service Award and I honestly think that a little recognition in return is due.
So, here's the deal. The classic Bill Murray film "Groundhog Day" returns to the screens of The Plaza 1&2 this weekend for a few shows! Yes, you've seen it once, you've seen it 10 times...but...it is 25 years old this year believe it or not, so you may have missed the chance to see it in the theater! Well, not anymore!! You've got 4 showing happening this weekend to get out and enjoy the movie for next to nothing combined with all the great movie treats and the comfortable setting of The Plaza.
Tom Bitson joined me for a little chat about the film and while we were at it, we talked about what was coming to the Plaza as well at Cinema Carousel this Spring and Summer....take a listen.
Always great stewards to their markets. I am so thankful to Celebration Cinema for all they do for Muskegon and our community! Go enjoy the fun of Groundhog Day. Who knows....maybe we're on to the next big "Rocky Horror Picture Show" cult following. Can you believe 25 years? Wow! Thanks to Bitson for coming on.
