Ghostbusters, the 1984 blockbuster that pitted Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson against a parade of paranormals, is coming back to theaters for a special limited engagement this October. Beginning on Thursday, Oct. 13 – and continuing on the next two Thursdays before Halloween – Ghostbusters will play one showtime each day in approximately 500 theaters across the U.S. “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,” said Rory Bruer, president, worldwide distribution for Sony Pictures. “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.”
