Ghoulish 'Ghostbusters' Experience Heads To Brooklyn

This summer, Ghostbusters mania will sweep the country, reminding every proton-wielding patron not to cross the streams.
As many of you are well aware, there is a new “Ghostbusters” movie coming out July 15 that stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.
However, fans of the franchise will get a chance to once again see the classic 1984 movie hit the big screen on June 8 thanks to Fathom Events (tickets on sale May 6).
But if that just isn’t enough to sate your inner Slimer, there is a Ghostbusters experience that will launch in Williamsburg, Brooklyn thanks to BBQ Films. That will also take place on June 8, which is a banner date for the original film, which hit theaters on that day back in 1984. Anyone who doesn’t get in on the fun that day can also enjoy the experience on Thursday and Friday, June 9 and 10.
While pricey, BBQ Films does promise an immersive event that should delight nerds who can quote every last line spouted from Peter Venkman’s lips.
For $42-$47, you get what is referred to as the New Recruit Ticket Package, which comes with a seat at the screening of the original film, a training tutorial with “ghostbustin’ gear,” a powwow with paranormal gurus and a limited edition poster.
If you spend upwards of $77, you get all that plus reserved seating, a commemorative gift and, most importantly, “adult ecto-beverages.”
Honestly, we would settle for non-adult Hi C Ecto-Coolers.
Dwight Caines, President, Theatrical Marketing for SPE was pleased with the news and promised a great event for anyone wiling to make the trek.
Caines stated, via press release, “Fathom Events is bringing the original to audiences all across the country, and if you're a moviegoer in New York, you'll have the chance to experience the movie as never before as BBQ Films transports you to the world of the Ghostbusters.”
BBQ Films will transform the location into an actual headquarters that will have items like the movie playing in the background, characters and ghosts milling about and, we presume, droves of likeminded unofficial Ghostbusters.
You could be like Louis Tully wandering the haunted halls of a beloved classic film.
