Bill Murray Day Declared by Toronto Film Festival

In a dream come true for Bill Murray fans, the Toronto International Film Festival has declared Sept. 5 as Bill Murray Day.

The festival, which opens Sept. 4, will offer free public screenings of “Stripes,” “Groundhog Day” and “Ghostbusters” prior to the world premiere of Murray’s comedy “St. Vincent,” directed by Theodore Melfi.

TIFF will also hold a contest for fans who attend all three free screenings, as up to 50 will win a ticket to the “St. Vincent” screening in the Special Presentations section. Murray portrays a war veteran who becomes a friend and mentor to a boy who moves in next door.

Shortly after the festival announced Bill Murray Day, Open Road dated his comedy “Rock the Kasbah” for an April 24 release. Murray portrays a has-been rock manager who takes his sole client on a USO tour of Afghanistan.
