Sony Pictures Entertainment announced Thursday that you can catch the “quintessential modern classic” in theaters for the first time in over 25 years during a limited run next month. On October 13, 20 and 27, “Ghostbusters” will play on about 500 big screens nationwide.
"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 [in theaters] in perfect digital presentation,” Sony Pictures’ Rory Bruer said in a statement.
(The movie will be shown in 2K digital with 5.1 Surround Sound.)
Bruer continued: “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.”
A re-release worked for "The Lion King" last week, and we're thinking this showing will be a smashing success.
Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson and Bill Murray battled ghosts, demons and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man in the 1984 action-comedy. The movie also stars Rick Moranis and Sigourney Weaver.
Sony Pictures advises fans to check local listings for show times and theaters. Visit Ghostbusters.com for information.
