The Ghostbusters are back!

In an all-new Digital Cinema Presentation, 80's cult classic GHOSTBUSTERS is back to save the world this Halloween.
Directed by Ivan Reitman and starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Sigourney Weaver, the film is about a trio of university parapsychologists in New York, who lose their research grant and decide to open their own business, 'Ghostbusters'. They are soon summoned to investigate strange happenings in a Central Park West flat and discover that all of Manhattan is being besieged by other worldly demons. But will they manage to capture all the ghosts and save the Big Apple in time?

As well as boasting an impressive cast list, this much-loved sci-fi comedy is remembered for its selection of imaginative ghost effects - in particular 'Slimer' and the 'Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man'.

On its original release in 1984, the film was a hit with both audiences and critics. It won a BAFTA Award (Best Original Song) for Ray Parker Jr.'s theme tune and was also nominated for two Academy Awards (Best Effects - Visual Effects, Best Music - Original Song).

Park Circus, the distributor, is currently working on a trailer for the remastered version. So until that appears we will have to put up with the original trailer from way back in 1984.
