Ghostbusters Returning to Theaters for Two Days in October

-

Fathom Events is giving movie fans a chance to get slimed again, but for two nights only: Ghostbusters returns to theaters on Sunday, October 6, and Thursday, October 10.

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.

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.

Nominated for two Academy Awards — Best Effects, Visual Effects; and Best Music, Original Song for Ray Parker Jr.’s ever-popular title tune – 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.

Upon opening on June 8, 1984, Ghostbusters took American movie theaters by storm, beginning its run as the No. 1 film, and continuing to attract audiences for a theatrical run of an eye-popping 30 weeks. The title song hit No. 1 on the Billboard Top 100 chart and remained a national bestseller for more than 20 weeks – including Halloween, when children all across the U.S. dressed as Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore.

“‘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.”
