On Thursday, October 27, just days before Halloween, The Mainstay in Rock Hall will show the classic 1984 comedy “Ghostbusters as its next outdoor movie on the 22-foot-wide screen prepared for its new backyard stage. Showtime for the outdoor movie is 7 pm.
Ghostbusters was released in 1984, and featured the all-star comedy cast of Bill Murray Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, and Rick Moranis. It also starred Sigourney Weaver, Annie Potts, and Ernie Hudson. The storyline follows a team of scientists who lose their cushy positions at a university in New York City. They decide to become “ghostbusters” to wage a high-tech battle with the supernatural for money. They stumble upon a gateway to another dimension, a doorway that will release demons and ghosts that threaten to terrorize the city, led by Gozar the Destructor who is accidentally embodied into the 100-foot-tall Stay-Puff Marshmallow Man. The Ghostbusters must now save New York from complete destruction. One film critic labeled Ghostbusters as “one of the greatest comedy films of all time.”
