“Human sacrifice! Dogs and cats living together! Mass Hysteria!” It sounds like a perfect time for ‘Ghostbusters’ to head back to theaters to celebrate its 35th Anniversary! Thanks to a deal between Sony Pictures and Fathom Events, we’ll be able to see the iconic film on the big screen again early next month. Over 600 theaters are planned to allow for this special screening which will occur on both October 6th and 10th, 2019 with showtimes of both 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Not only is the movie one of the most iconic horror-comedies of all time which surely inspired future such as ‘Shaun of the Dead’ and ‘Zombieland’ but it was able to remain at the box office for 30-weeks and was nominated for two Academy Awards.
Well worth a watch at a theater surrounded by fans who are just as excited for the experience.

You won’t just be seeing the movie on the big screen with this outing but also have a special introduction that will include both key members from the cast, and newly discovered alternate takes from many of the film’s most classic scenes.
Of the film’s re-release, Fathom Events Vice President of Studio Relations Tom Lucas shared:
“Ghostbusters is a comedy legend and a movie legend, a movie whose immediate success has been followed by decades of fervent fan appreciation. 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.”
Just being able to see Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson on the big screen together makes this exciting for anyone who wasn’t able to see it in a theater before. As an added bonus, we can’t forget the stellar performances by the supporting cast consisting of Sigourney Weaver, Rick Moranis, Annie Potts, and William Atherton. Considering it was initially released in 1984 there are generations which haven’t had the ability to check it out on the big screen.
Tickets are available at Fathom Events.
