Every Groundhog Day, The Roxy celebrates what just might be the best Groundhog Day film of all time, Groundhog Day. In fact, in honor of weatherman Phil Connors's inexplicable plight, we're showing it over and over and over and over again. Last year's marathon was an extraordinary success, with over 50 brave souls signing up, and with a special video message of encouragement from Ned Ryerson himself, Stephen Tobolowsky. This year we're raising the bar and demanding our marathoners endure SEVEN screenings, with 15-minute breaks in between each one. If you can make it through ALL of them you win a T-shirt specially designed for this year's marathon by our friend Jack Metcalf, as well as a special Groundhog Day Membership, which grants you free admission and free popcorn to any regular film screening at The Roxy for a year.

You can:

Buy a ticket to any screening for $8

Sign up for the marathon for $20

Sign up for the marathon + receive unlimited popcorn, fountain drinks, and coffee for $30

Sorry, the $40 marathon + sandwich option is no longer available to people who haven't yet signed up.

Showtimes start at:

THE RULES

This is always a fun-filled day, but there are a few rules to follow in order to complete the challenge. Being told by any Roxy employee that these rules have been violated will disqualify you from the competition.

1. NO SLEEPING. If you sleep, you're out. If you "rest your eyes" for a period of longer than a few seconds, and we catch you doing it, you're out.

2. All marathon participants must sign in at the theater no later than 9:30. After 9:30 no one can enter the marathon, and if you're not here for the sign-in, you forfeit your participation.  

3. You can leave the building between screenings, but do so at your own risk: if you aren't back before the next screening starts, you're out.

4. No bathroom breaks during the screening. 

5. No looking at your phone, talking on your phone, reading, game-playing, conversating, etc. during the screenings. 

6. By registering for this event your photo may be used in marketing and advertising of the Groundhog Day Marathon, including but not limited to Roxy social media, website, and any third party coverage.

7. The theater will not accept any outside food deliveries.


8. We are capping the number of marathon slots at 100, so if think you have what it takes, sign up asap!


Good luck, and remember:

When Chekhov saw the long winter, he saw a winter bleak and dark and bereft of hope. Yet we know that winter is just another step in the cycle of life. But sitting here among the people of Punxsutawney and basking in the warmth of their hearths and hearts, we couldn't imagine a better fate than a long and lustrous winter.
