Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Screenings

The last time Sony Pictures officially screened Ghostbusters nationwide in theaters was during October 2011. Unfortunately (unless its still to be announced, I like to be optimistic) we and ghostheads collectively haven’t heard about any official 30th Anniversary Ghostbusters screenings from Sony Pictures.

I am aware of at least a couple of Ghostbusters screenings in North America. Along with the global viewing on June 7, 2014. I may not be able to continuously update with additional screenings as they pop up. I’m asking if you’re a ghosthead and/or part of a franchise and if you’ll be at a “franchise gathering” for Ghostbusters screenings to leave a comment on this post and/or our Facebook account.

Central Park Ghostbusters Screening

The Central Park Conservancy announced its list of Central Park’s Free Summer movies. Of course (unless its a complete coincidence) during Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary they’ll be screening Ghostbusters in one of our historical areas (we can picture the upper west side from 30 years ago already) on August 21, 2014.

We’re not sure why the Conservancy chose to screen Ghostbusters on a Thursday. I suppose the event is suppose to be local to those who live on the island that is Manhattan. For those who may want to attend from that Garden state may want to make it a three day weekend. Good thing then I’m already in the city that never sleeps.

Monster Mania Con Write Up

On Saturday, March 8, 2014 I went to my first convention in about 7 years. I met up with Ghostbusters NJ franchise members, North Jersey Ghostbusters members, and late in the day a member of what has been the third Ghostbusters NJ franchise at Monster-Mania Con in Cherry Hill, NJ. Where during the afternoon I met Ernie Hudson for the third time since 2004 and we took our franchises first group pictures with him.

It took time to get the pictures from the convention, have some recovery time from the travels, and have the time to write about it. I wrote about my Monster-Mania experiences on my franchise site.

If you’re also interested Bill and Greg wrote separate write ups. Apparently before and after I was at the Crowne Plaza Hotel they busted some ghosts and made $5K.

On Saturday, June 7, 2014, ghostheads worldwide are getting together (in a spiritual sense of course) to watch Ghostbusters for the 30th Anniversary. Yeah, the anniversary is on Sunday, June 8, 2014. Saturdays are less stressful? The 7 can accommodate all the time zones more?

If you’re interested in this worldwide synchronization of Ghostbusters, a Facebook page has been set up.
