Ghostbusters for the first time on the big screen during the summer of 1984 is still a vivid memory for this Basementite. I went with my mom, the No. 1 theatre at the Odeon was packed, and people laughed their collective asses off.
Believe it or not, that was 30 years ago. To celebrate this milestone, the Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis vehicle is headed back to the big screen later this sumer.
A restored and remastered Ghostbusters hits 700 movie theatres on Aug. 29. No word yet on where these will be, but fingers crossed one is a theatre near me. The flick, and it's not so great sequel, are also getting the deluxe anniversary Blu-ray treatment with deleted scenes etcetera.
Suffice to say, I am all for the theatrical re-release. A movie like Ghostbusters is a crowd event. I so want to experience that again.
