Harold Ramis Salute in Woodstock, Illinois

From the March 9, 2016, Chicago Tribune "Woodstock Honors Ramis.

The town of Woodstock and a movie theater there are paying tribute to director Harold Ramis next week by showing three films that he appeared in and/or wrote.

"A Tribute to Harold Ramis" will be held March 13-15 at the Woodstock Theater, 209 Main Street, and will screen "Ghostbusters," "Stripes" and "Animal House."

The Chicago native and Second City icon, who died in 2014, directed "Groundhog Day" in Woodstock.  Last month Second City announced it is opening a film school named after him.

Admission is $6 for each film and showtimes can be found at

The theater was featured in "Ghostbusters" where Bill Murray and date pulled up and he did his best Bronco Billy imitation.  I am hoping to at least get to see my all-time favorite film, "Animal House" Tuesday.  The theater is located just off the historic Woodstock Square and near where the Tip-Top Cafe was in "Groundhog Day."  It is now a Mexican restaurant.
