The 1993 Bill Murray film Groundhog Day may be set in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, but it was primarily filmed in Woodstock, Illinois. The public square that hosts the “Seer of Seer, Prognosticator of Prognosticators” is actually Woodstock Square and the bed and breakfast where Murray’s character Phil stays is still open to the public. Cinephiles can take a walking tour of most of the locations, or stop for a photo at this commemorative mural.
