This October is bound to be visited by something strange when GHOSTBUSTERS returns to theaters for a special 35th Anniversary celebration. It’s been announced that the Ivan Reitman‘s 1984 classic is gearing up to slime fans of the iconic franchise all over again, but for two nights only: Sunday, October 6, and Thursday, October 10. This momentous occasion meant to make honorary Ghostbusters feel good is brought to you by the fine folks at Fathom Events, who we hear are very excited to bring the Paranormal Fab Four back onto the big screen.
Fathom’s GHOSTBUSTERS 35th Anniversary event will feature an introduction that reunites key members of the cast of this iconic film, sharing the memories of making a film that remains a cultural touchstone. The introduction will also include newly unearthed and rarely seen alternate takes from famous scenes.
According to today’s official press release: Fathom Events and Sony Pictures will present “Ghostbusters” in more than 600 movie theaters nationwide at 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. local time on Sunday, October 6, and Thursday, October 10. A complete list of theater locations is available on the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).
I’m fairly certain that this film needs no explanation, but hey, we’re here, aren’t we? GHOSTBUSTERS stars Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson as a group of intrepid paranormal investigators who go into business for themselves to rid haunted buildings of troublesome spirits, unaware that their endeavor could save the world. Written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, and produced and directed by Ivan Reitman, GHOSTBUSTERS also stars Sigourney Weaver, Rick Moranis, Annie Potts and William Atherton.
In the years following the film’s release, Reitman’s GHOSTBUSTERS has become a cornerstone of geek culture. Endlessly quotable, positively hilsarious, and even a bit frightening for younger members of the audience, this classic piece of cinema helped create a culture and fandom all its own. As the film that continues to leave its mark throughout generations, this will be the first time that many fans will be afforded the chance to see it up on the silver screen. Who you gonna call? Fathom Events, that’s who, because they’ve got the tickets you need for this once in a lifetime event. Enjoy!
