Groundhog Day 2017 is Thursday, and to acknowledge the annual weather prediction ritual, AMC will air repeated viewings of the movie Groundhog Day.
In the 1993 film, Bill Murray plays Phil Connors, a TV weatherman who travels to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, to cover the town's annual Groundhog Day ceremony.
But upon his arrival in Punxsutawney, Phil starts reliving the same day — Groundhog Day — over and over. When he finally accepts what's happening, he decides to take chances in his life that he normally wouldn't. (Anything to quit waking up to Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe" on the radio every day, right?) Andie MacDowell costars as Rita Hanson, Phil's love interest.
When and where to watch
A Groundhog Day marathon will air on AMC at the following times. The PG-rated film is just over one hour and 40 minutes long. You can also rent the movie via Amazon for $3.99.
