Kathleen Mellen’s Best Bets: ‘Groundhog Day’; Smith College dance

Thursday, February 20, 2014

“Groundhog Day,” starring Bill Murray as an obnoxious weatherman who is caught in an ever-repeating Groundhog Day in Punxsutawney, Pa., is one funny movie, and should be watched over and over and over again at this time of year. In addition to dosing yourself at home, via DVD, see it at 2 p.m. on Sunday at Cinemark in Hadley, and again (that’s the point, after all) on Monday at 7 p.m. at Amherst Cinema. That show has the added attraction of a talk before the screening about time loops (is that a real thing?) by Amherst College physicist Kannan Jagannathan.


Four Smith College master’s degree students in dance present a concert of original choreography Feb. 6-8 at 8 p.m. in Theatre 14, Mendenhall Center for the Performing Arts, Northampton. 585-3222
