Ghostbusters (1984)

“There is no Dana. Only Zuul.”

Ivan Reitman‘s original GHOSTBUSTERS remains one of the most defining blockbusters of the 1980s, and features standout performances from an all-star, A-list cast that includes Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Sigourney Weaver, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis, and a ghost that gets off on sliming unsuspecting victims.

Costumes are very welcome – and encouraged. Kids OK in the balcony!

(And remember, whatever you do… Don’t cross the streams!!)

“On balance, GHOSTBUSTERS is a hoot. It’s Bill Murray‘s picture, and in a triumph of mind over matter, he blows away the film’s boring special effects with his one-liners.” (Gene Siskel)

“Whoever thought of having evil’s final manifestation take the form of a 100-ft. marshmallow deserves the rational mind’s eternal gratitude.” (TIME Magazine)

GHOSTBUSTERS (Ivan Reitman, 1984 / 107 mins / PG) After losing their academic posts at a prestigious university, a team of parapsychologists goes into business as proton-pack-toting “ghostbusters” who exterminate ghouls, hobgoblins and supernatural pests of all stripes. An ad campaign pays off when a knockout cellist hires the squad to purge her swanky digs of demons that appear to be living in her refrigerator.
