WOODSTOCK, Ill.  — A movie theater in suburban Chicago is hosting a three-day Harold Ramis film festival in an auditorium named for the late actor-filmmaker.

The (Crystal Lake) Northwest Herald reports that Classic Cinemas Woodstock Theatre will show “Ghostbusters” on Sunday, “Stripes” on Monday and “National Lampoon’s Animal House” on Tuesday.

Woodstock Theatre Manager Mike Wozny says “Stripes” is one of his favorite movies, one he can watch repeatedly on late-night TV. He says watching a comedy with a laughing audience in a theater only enhances the experience.

The films will be shown in the Harold Ramis Auditorium, the theater’s historic original auditorium renovated and named in Ramis’ honor.

Ramis died in February 2014 at the age of 69 at his home in the Chicago suburbs after suffering from an autoimmune disease.
