Three university parapsychologists lose their research grant and their credibility when the Dean decides that their theories, methods and conclusions have no place in his august institution. Out of a job, they decide to go into business for themselves, setting up as professional paranormal eliminators. Starting out with only a converted fire station and a beat-up ambulance to their name, the Ghostbusters quickly become local heroes when the city sees a dramatic rise in supernatural activity and a giant marshmallow threatens its very existence.
Sony Pictures’ Ghostbusters is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year with a new 4K restoration screening across Cineworld Cinemas for one day on 28 October and further shows taking place across the UK for Halloween. With Bill Murray starring opposite a host of New York’s undead, an infinitely quotable script from Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, and a soundtrack that hasn’t left audiences’ heads since they were first asked “Who ya gonna call?”, Ghostbusters is set to be a Halloween blockbuster.
