The Charleston Music Hall is thrilled to present The Summer of Bill Film Series, a 7-film series composed of Bill Murray films with a corresponding art exhibit. The Summer of Bill Art Exhibit will have a Free opening party on May 31st from 5:30 to 7:30pm. Local Murray-lover, Tiffany Pretlow, is organizing the art exhibit with over 20 local artists contributing Bill Murray-inspired works in all different mediums. Pretlow organized the "Where's Murray?" Art Show at King Dusko a few years back. Rumor has it a life-size jaguar shark may make an appearance. The art exhibit will be on view from May 31 - August 20.

We will be presenting 7 Bill Murray films between May 31 and August 20. We originally had four films in the series: Caddyshack, Ghostbusters, Lost in Translation, and Life Aquatic. We texted Bill to make sure he was fine with us doing this series. He responded saying he was honored and loved that we were doing the series, but he wanted to see some of his "failures" included in the series. He mentioned that we only included the hits and that everyone wanted to see the hits, but they needed to also see the flops, so we added three more films: The Razor's Edge, Rushmore, and Jim Jarmusch's Broken Flowers. We love all three of these films, but they failed at the box office. We love the way Bill Murray has inspired playfulness in our community, and we are excited to pay homage to this amazing artist. Each film will start at 7:30 with the bar opening at 7pm. The films will be $8 each, or you can purchase a 7-film pass for $35.

June 6: Razor's Edge
June 14: Ghostbusters (1984)
