The film world suffered a huge loss earlier this year with the death of Harold Ramis. The Chicago-born writer, director, and actor shaped the comedic sensibilities of multiple generations with films like Caddyshack, Stripes, Ghostbusters, and Groundhog Day. Plus, he gave countless dorky dudes with fungus-related hobbies a role model in Egon Spengler, who never failed to remind us of the time we tried to drill a hole in our head. Remember that?
Happily, Ramis’ genius will live on this summer in Milwaukee. For the sixth year in a row, Point Fish Fry & A Flick will screen five movies on an outdoor screen along the lakefront at Discovery World, and two of those movie—Ghostbusters and Caddyshack—are vintage Ramis. American Hustle, Ride Along, and The Big Lebowski round out the lineup. As always, Stevens Point Brewery beer and fish from Bartolotta Restaurants will compliment the free Friday evening film series. With those prices, the interest payments alone for the first five years come to over $0.
Here’s the full lineup. (Okay, now insert a Caddyshack reference here.)
July 18: American Hustle
August 1: Caddyshack
August 15: Ride Along
Ghostbusters The Big Lebowski
