  • Monday 01 September 2014

Following the success of the Special Event screenings at Sunshine Coast Council’s Arthouse Cinema Nambour the next film classic is Ghostbusters at 7:30pm on Thursday, September 11.

Ghostbusters is a 1984 American supernatural comedy film starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Harold Ramis as three eccentric parapsychologists in New York City who start a ghost-catching business.

The Ghostbusters are retained by Dana Barrett (Sigourney Weaver), whose apartment is haunted by a demonic spirit, Zuul, a demigod worshipped as a servant to Gozer the Gozerian, a Sumerian shape-shifting god of destruction. Venkman takes a particular interest in the case, and competes with Dana's neighbor, Louis Tully (Rick Moranis), for her affection.

Gozer is summoned to bring about the end of the world, and initially appears as a woman but then threatens to take a form chosen by the team. One of the Ghostbusters teams inadvertently recalls ‘something that could never, ever possibly destroy us’ and the destructor of all humanity arrives in the form of a giant Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and begins attacking the city.

This year marks 30 years since Ghostbusters was first released to huge critical and commercial success, receiving a positive response from critics and audiences and grossing more than $291 million worldwide.

It was nominated for two Oscars at the 57th Academy Awards for Best Visual Effects and Best Original Song.

The film launched the Ghostbusters media franchise, which included a 1989 sequel, two animated television series, and several video games.
