Sleepless in Seattle and Groundhog Day

Join us for a night of romantic comedy under the starry skies this Valentine’s Day.

After the death of his wife, Sam Baldwin (Tom Hanks) moves to Seattle with his son, Jonah (Ross Mallinger). When Jonah calls in to a talk-radio program to find a new wife for his father, Sam grudgingly gets on the line and laments above his lost love. Annie Reed (Meg Ryan), a reporter in Baltimore, hears Sam speak and immediately falls for him, even though she is engaged to humdrum Walter (Bill Pullman). Unsure where it will lead, she writes Sam a letter asking him to meet her at the Empire State Building on Valentine's Day. Also starring Rosie O'Donnell, Rita Wilson, and Rob Reiner.

TV weather man Phil Connors (Bill Murray) is reluctantly sent to cover the annual Groundhog Day event in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. This is his fourth year on the story, and he makes no effort to hide his frustration. On awaking the 'following' day he discovers that it's Groundhog Day again, and again, and again. First he uses this to his advantage, then comes the realisation that he is doomed to spend the rest of eternity in the same place, seeing the same people do the same thing EVERY day.

The more Phil relives the same day, the more he's forced to look at other people's lives, and something unusual happens: he begins to care about others. He starts to respect people, he tries to save the life of a homeless man, and he discovers that he's falling in love with his producer Rita (Andie McDowell).
