WOODSTOCK, Ill. (AP) - The Chicago suburb where Harold Ramis filmed the movie “Groundhog Day” plans to honor the late director.

WNIJ radio reports (https://bit.ly/1KebOmp ) that an auditorium at a movie theater in Woodstock will be named after Ramis on Saturday during the annual Woodstock Groundhog Days festival.

Rick Bellairs is on the Woodstock Groundhog Days Committee. He says the suburb’s town square is recognizable around the world because of Ramis. He says Ramis a “gracious and genuine guy.”

The 1993 movie starred Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell. Ramis died last year at age 69 at his suburban Chicago home after suffering from an autoimmune disease.
