Summer of Bill Film Series: Life Aquatic

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. Local Murray-lover, Tiffany "Mish" 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 for 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 all 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.

We also commissioned 5 local artists to create 7 unique film posters. Caddyshack by Jason Groce, The Razor's Edge by Bennett Jones, Ghostbusters by Seth Deitch, Rushmore by Taylor Faulkner, Lost in Translation by Karen Ann Myers, Broken Flowers by Karen Ann Myers, The Life Aquatic by Anne Peyton, 7 Bills Series Poster by Karen Ann Myers. These specialty poster prints will be for sale all summer at the box office.

Remaining Summer of Bill Film Schedule:
Rushmore - June 29

Lost in Translation - July 26

Broken Flowers - August 2

The Life Aquatic - August 20

The Life Aquatic:
Renowned oceanographer Steve Zissou (Bill Murray) has sworn vengeance upon the rare shark that devoured a member of his crew. In addition to his regular team, he is joined on his boat by Ned (Owen Wilson), a man who believes Zissou to be his father, and Jane (Cate Blanchett), a journalist pregnant by a married man. They travel the sea, all too often running into pirates and, perhaps more traumatically, various figures from Zissou's past, including his estranged wife, Eleanor (Anjelica Huston).
