Ivan Reitman's Ghostbusters instantly became a pop culture phenomenon upon its release back in 1984, beginning its run as the No. 1 film and spawning a sequel, an animated series, various product lines, a reboot in 2016, and continues to thrive with a new movie in the works from Jason Reitman, titled Ghostbusters 2020.
Celebrating the original film's 35th anniversary, Fathom Events is bringing the team back to theater screens for two nights only, on October 6th and October 10th!
"This special 35th-anniversary presentation of Ghostbusters 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."
Ghostbusters boasts an incredible cast led by 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.
"Ghostbusters is a comedy legend and a movie legend, a movie whose immediate success has been followed by decades of fervent fan appreciation," said Fathom Events Vice President of Studio Relations Tom Lucas. "There’s never been a comedy quite like it, and maybe never will be again, and Fathom Events is delighted to bring Ghostbusters back to the big screen for longtime fans to enjoy again and new audiences to discover for the first time."
A complete list of theater locations is available on the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).
