GHOSTBUSTERS: 30th ANNIVERSARY

115 min | PG
Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson star as a quartet of Manhattan-based “paranormal investigators” in this infectiously fun 80s classic. Newly remastered in celebration of its 30th Anniversary, GHOSTBUSTERS follows university parapsychologists who lose a research grant when their experiment methodology is proven to be bogus. The team goes into business for themselves and are summoned to investigate the strange happenings in Dana Barrett’s (Sigourney Weaver) Central Park West apartment. What they discover is that all of Manhattan is being besieged by ghosts and other worldly demons through a portal in her building.
