If you’ve ever watched the scene in the original Ghostbusters where Peter Venkman is writhing on the floor of the Sedgewick Hotel splattered with ectoplasm and thought, “Jeez, I wish that was me,” then this is the screening for you. Similarly, if at the end of the film, where the team are covered in marshmallow, your abiding feeling was, “Wow, being doused head to toe in white foam sure looks like fun,” then again — this is an event you won’t want to miss. Because at the Ghostbusters slime-along, every time there’s a character who’s sprayed with a supernatural substance, the audience will follow suit. It’s (a bit more) like actually being there, in a ghoul-infested 1984 New York. Except there’s little to no chance of your partner sleeping four feet above their covers when you get home. So that’s a relief.
This event takes place at 9-10.35pm on Sunday, 25 September.
Ghostbusters (1984) is available on DVD and Blu-ray now. Ghostbusters (2016) will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on 21st November.
