Ghostbusters returning to a cinema near you!

Ghostbusters returning to a cinema near you!

No doubt stemming from the success of the re-released “Lion King” this past weekend (or can it truly be to gauge interest in a “Ghostbusters 3″?), Sony has decided to re-issue “Ghostbusters” theatrically.

The film will screen in the states for three nights in October. And for those in Australia, it will be screening at The Astor Theatre in Melbourne on various nights from October to December (you can find details of it’s St Kilda return here).

Who can forget their first time seeing “Ghostbusters” on the big screen? I sure don’t. The theme song had everyone singing-along and clapping and the librarian ghost had many-a-younger fan jumping into the seat in front of them it spooked them so awfully. Mostly, I just remember it being a great time – silly, spooky and sensationally performed (everyone, right down to supporting players Annie Potts, Rick Moranis, William Atherton and the gorgeous Jennifer Runyon were marvellous).

I look forward to seeing it on the big screen again!, don’t you?

Here’s the press release :

Who Ya Gonna Call?

Commenting on the announcement, Rory Bruer, president, Worldwide Distribution for Sony Pictures, said, “We’re delighted to be bringing Ghostbusters back to the big screen – this is a special celebration of the movie, giving the fans a chance to see it on the big screen in perfect digital presentation. As we head towards Halloween, we ain’t afraid of no ghosts, but just the same, we’re glad that everyone’s favorite paranormal eliminators are on the case.”

The film was directed and produced by Ivan Reitman, with the screenplay written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, Ghostbusters stars Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Harold Ramis, and Rick Moranis. The executive producer was Bernie Brillstein.

In Ghostbusters, University parapsychologists Dr. Peter Venkman (Murray), Dr. Raymond Stanz (Aykroyd) and Dr. Egon Spengler (Ramis) lose a research grant when their experiment methodology is proven to be bogus. The team decides to go into business for themselves and open ‘Ghostbusters,’ a ghost removal service. After struggling to get on their feet, they are summoned to investigate the strange happenings in Dana Barrett’s (Weaver) Central Park West apartment. What they discover is that all Manhattan is being besieged by ghosts and other worldly demons through a portal in her building.

Ghostbusters is available on Blu-ray™ and DVD.
