“Stripes 40th Anniversary,” with an exclusive introduction from Ivan Reitman & Bill Murray, is marching into select movie theaters nationwide on Sun., Aug. 29 and Thurs., Sept. 2. When John Winger (Murray) loses his job, his car, his apartment and his girlfriend — all in one day — he decides he has only one option: volunteer for the army. And he talks his friend Russell (Harold Ramis) into enlisting with him. Where else, they figure, can they help save the world for democracy… and meet girls!
John and Russell find basic training a snap: they are arrested twice, have endless run-ins with their drill sergeant (Warren Oates) and get into a bit of a mess at a female mud wrestling match. They even manage to steal a top-secret government vehicle and accidentally wind up behind the iron curtain. Bill Murray has joined the Army, and the Army will never be the same. See the classic film stripes up on the big screen with a special new featurette before the film! Join Bill Murray and Ivan Reitman as they sit down together 40-years later and give fans an inside look at their time filming STRIPES. Tickets for “Stripes 40th Anniversary” can be purchased online at www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices.
