BRADENTON – Film Fridays at the South Florida Museum are back with the "Greetings From Florida" series, featuring movies shot in the Sunshine State. After a hiatus through October due to Planetarium renovations, the series continues in the museum's new and improved theater, employing state of the art audio visual technology.
The 1980 film classic Caddyshack was filmed at several Florida locations, including the Plantation Country Club in Fort Lauderdale; the Boca Raton Hotel and Club in Boca Raton; and the Rolling Hills Golf Club (now the Grande Oaks Golf Club) in Davie, Florida, which was ironically chosen because it had no palm trees and the director wanted the movie to feel as if it was in the Midwest, not Florida.
In the movie, an exclusive golf club must deal with the indignities brought about by a brash new member (Chevy Chase) and a wily and destructive gopher doing battle with the goofy groundskeeper (Bill Murray), whose brother Brian wrote the film, based on their experience working as caddies, while growing up in suburban Chicago.
Pricing: $5 General Admission, $3 Member Admission.
