The film will be displayed on a large screen in William Saroyan Theatre.”

The concert will be held 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29.

    I’d like to go because my other half loves this movie, but I haven’t seen it. I absolutely love the Fresno Philharmonic. This would make for a perfect date night!

    Bill Murray and Halloween is the best!

    My favorite is actually favorites. The trio of Dan Aykroyd,, Bill Murray, and Jeff Goldblum play off one another in such a way as to be symbiotic to my engagement with the movie. They set the standard for future generations of Ghostbusters. Setting this movie, so spectacular in its New York architectural landscape, to the sounds of the Fresno Philharmonic promises to create a memorable night! In addition, I plan to take a former student who has never enjoyed the Fresno Philharmonic in person.

    My favorite is Egon, played by Harold Ramis, who “collects molds, spores and fungi.”
    Mr. Ramis, whose credits include his role as Bill Murray’s sidekick in “Stripes” and the doctor in “As Good as it Gets.”
    A major writing contributor and long-time collaborator of “National Lampoon,” Mr. Ramis was also a kind, gentle man, a credit to the screenwriting/filmmaking industry and a comedic icon.
