If there’s somethin’ strange in your neighborhood, who ya gonna call? GHOSTBUSTERS! (of course!) 

This Friday, September 14th, our Presented in Amazing AlamoScope: 70mm at the Ritz series continues with Ivan Reitman’s much-loved GHOSTBUSTERS (1984) presented in glorious 70mm! Venkman, Spengler, Stantz, and Zeddemore are all back in bustin’ action on the big screen. We at the Drafthouse are thrilled to include this title in our inaugural 70mm series. It is one of our personal favorites and a film adored by all generations. Hilarious, sexy, action-packed -- and at the end of the day, its heart and soul is a love story. 

Alamo Drafthouse’s resident Terror Tuesday programmer, Zack Carlson, best captures the film’s widespread appeal and undeniable charm: “It’s possible that GHOSTBUSTERS is the world’s only universally adored movie. If you don’t love it, you’re obviously not a human being. Spectre-destroyers Murray, Aykroyd, Ramis and the vastly under-appreciated Hudson collectively defined everything we enjoy in ‘80s cinema, unleashing a supernatural adventure that busts funnybones as well as ghosts. Together, the four hopped in a converted ambulance and made an entire decade safe for hilarity, action, and transdimensional demon combat. But you knew that already, as this timeless classic is burned into our minds eternally...but NOW it can be seen in paranormally perfect 70mm, which will bust your skull open like a lightning bolt shot straight outta Gozer!” -- Zack Carlson, Alamo Drafthouse Film Programmer

Tickets are on sale now and disappearing fast!!! Prove that you ain’t afraid of no ghosts and don’t miss your opportunity to see this landmark genre film creation of the 1980s in a beautiful 70mm print! (Sam Prime)
