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:

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.
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.

It’s been three years since we’ve talked about Ghostbusters at a major theme park. (GBI Blog Post, January 3, 2016) Now Sony Pictures and Universal Studios Orlando are bringing GHOSTBUSTERS™ to Universal Orlando Halloween Horror Nights. Press release after the jump.

If you’re a Ghostbuster, you already have a “employee welcome kit.” Whether you’ve been part of a Ghostbusters franchise for 35 years or 5 min, Ghostbusters International has all you really need to prove how official you already are.
- Letters & Documents
- The Official Ghostbusters™ Training Manual
- Tobin’s Spirits Guide
You know, to name a few examples. What if you want a more physical kit? Which we suppose could also be a handy collectible. Finally (hopefully) Icon Heroes has ghostheads covered with their upcoming “Ghostbusters Employee Welcome Kit.”

Our own web monkey Richard Roy aka Spengs received an email today from Erica, Senior Manger of Marketing for Think Geek. She has been inviting franchise groups/ghostheads to Think Geek locations this Sunday, June 2, 2019.
Why would she use her valuable time to do that? It’s the 35th anniversary of Ghostbusters and they’re celebrating Ghostbusters within their retail locations!
Publicly not a lot has been shared about in how they’ll be celebrating Ghostbusters. We do know Think Geek will have an exclusive GHOSTBUSTERS™ Funko Pop. You’re a ghosthead and may already be in a group. You’ll probably have fun in air conditioning for free. Unless you buy stuff. And It’s GHOSTBUSTERS™. What other reason do you need to attend?
Think Geek’s individual locations Facebook pages have set up event information. If you’re in the US, “it won’t hurt you” to check if a Think Geek is having a Ghostbusters 35th Anniversary event.
