Toronto is getting a Bill Murray Day
Toronto is getting a Bill Murray Day -- and it's about time. We already recognize "World Plumbing Day" and "Oral Health Day," so why not get together and celebrate one of the funniest and most talented actors of his generation. Besides, Murray has never been shy about his affection for Toronto.
While not officially proclaimed by the City, Bill Murray Day will dominate the second day of TIFF this year with free screenings at the Lightbox leading up to the world premiere of the highly anticipated St. Vincent, Theodore Melfi's new comedy featuring Murray.
It's perhaps a bit of a shame that Lost in Translation doesn't find its way into this mix, a film partially responsible for the actor's late career resurgence, but one gets the sense the idea is to keep things as lighthearted as possible. If you manage to attend screenings of all three movies, you'll be eligible for a yet-to-be disclosed prize. That dangle alone is probably worth taking the day off work.
