Today, Robert Maxwell Barbieri (Instagram) shared a new set of photos from the Official International Ghostbusters Club. (Ghostbusters International Page) He messaged us via Facebook the photos to share here at Ghostbusters International.

About this Ghostbusters Fan Club Kit

Found another rare Ghostbusters fan club kit. I snagged this one because it’s an earlier set with the badges and a different introductory letter. I have 2 later kits with one explaining they ran out of iron on patches and included 2 big glossy stickers instead. Just another chapter in the fan club history.

Site News: GBI Is Across Your Cities

Written By: Richard Roy, Creative Guy (Unsure of what my job title is.)

Ghostbusters International and an affiliated franchise are most likely already in your city. And easily accessible through your internet or telecommunications provider. As its been a number of years since GBI as a company and club has had a domain name, the time is right for GBI to not just have a dot wordpress dot com url.

It’s 2020, twenty twenty. Let that sink in. The GHOSTBUSTERS™ franchise celebrates it’s 36th anniversary by welcoming a continuation and a sequel of the original films with Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Obligatory plug: Coming to theaters on July 10, 2020. Directed by Jason Reitman. And all a new Ghostbusters film will bring to ghostheads.

I’ve wanted GBI to have a new domain name, it had to be the “right one.” And personally it had to feel right as well. I didn’t need to just celebrate the 35th anniversary by also having a domain name again for GBI.

This year it’s better early on to have a new domain name for Ghostbusters International, for Ghostbusters: Afterlife premiere, theatrical releases, and home video releases. With that, in digital text Ghostbusters International new dot com is:

Official International Ghostbusters Club Photos Updated

officialgbsfanclubjobapp2


On August 6, 2019 Ghostbusters International was able to recreate (GBI Blog Post) part of the original Official International Ghostbusters Club, thanks to Robert Maxwell Barbieri. (Facebook)

We figured that would be it unless TECHPAC or “No Ghosts, the quarterly newsletter surfaced. On Halloween and into early November (“that’s my fault”) Robert reached out with a couple of new pieces around the Official Ghostbusters Fan Club.

An article about the club, written by Rick Lyman, Inquirer Movie Critic and a letter (more like a note) from the Ghostbusters Fan Club so Mark Lister and Jim Garvey could send “qualifying applicants” club items once they or their parents paid $8.95 USD.

We’ve added these 2 new photos to the Official International Ghostbusters Club page.

Cleanin’ Up The Town: Remembering Ghostbusters Trailer

The final trailer, not the final Ghostbusters documentary movie!

Ecto-Containment

I haven’t written that much about Cleanin’ Up The Town: Remembering Ghostbusters, (Facebook) the once ultimate Ghostbusters/II documentary. I had shared both here and at GBI about the former Kickstarter campaign. Ever since I’ve shared on my Ghostbusters social media accounts updates from Bueno Productions. Including more recently premieres/screenings for Cleanin’ Up The Town: Remember Ghostbusters.

Today, the Buenos posted the final trailer for Cleanin’ Up The Town: Remember Ghostbusters.

As a quick aside, the once Ghostbusters II part of “Cleanin'” will be released as its own documentary movie.



Twelve years in the making and with over forty cast and crew interviews Cleanin’ Up The Town: Remembering Ghostbusters is the definitive documentary that charts how Ghostbusters came to fruition and how the film was made by the people that made them. Interviews include actors in the film Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver Annie Potts…

Official International Ghostbusters Club Photos

Remember that time we wrote about the official Ghostbusters Fan Club? Five years later we’re writing about the official international Ghostbusters. fan. club. again. For a very good reason. It started this summer when the king of the ghostheads, Peter Mosen. (Facebook) had been taking and sharing photos from his career and collecting. One or more of the shared photos came from the original Ghostbusters fan club.

As I have in at least the last 5 years I asked about “club stuff.” That’s also when I heard from Robert Maxwell Barbieri. (Facebook) If you didn’t know, Robert restored the original The Real Ghostbusters pilot. Which Sony Pictures put on ghostbusters.com before also physically adding the restored pilot to the Ghostbusters 35th anniversary 4K/Blu-Ray!

As a ghosthead collector, Robert has items from the original Ghostbusters fan club. I asked for pictures or scans. Could they be shared for ghostheads? Robert agreed and I wasn’t disappointed by what he sent over. Including some extras from his archives.

If you have one or more of the quarterly newsletter “No-Ghosts” or something else from the original fan club, please contact us at: ghostbusterscities @ gmail . com.

It took around a week once we had the photos. We’re happy to recreate some semblance from the official international Ghostbusters club.
