Capital Celluloid 2015 - Day 66: Sat Mar 7

Ghostbusters (Reitman, 1984): BFI Southbank, NFT1, 4pm

This is an exclusive screening for BFI Members and their guests.

Chicago Reader review:
Essentially a $30 million version of Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy but not at all a bad time, thanks mainly to Bill Murray's incredibly dry line readings and director Ivan Reitman's maintenance of a moderately coherent tone and plotline (1984). Murray is the leader of a team of parapsychologists (his partners are Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, both curiously underutilized) who hire themselves out to trap domestic spooks; their toughest client is Sigourney Weaver, who sees a vision of the apocalypse in her refrigerator. Reitman (Meatballs, Stripes) is adept at low-key improvisational comedy.
