Got ghosts? Who ya gonna call?

This Saturday night, Ghostbusters is presented outdoors in Cloverdale as part of the City of Surrey’s Movie Under the Stars series.

A 1984 summer blockbuster famously – and hilariously – answered that delicate question for millions of moviegoers.

And this Saturday night, Ghostbusters is presented outdoors in Cloverdale as part of the City of Surrey’s Movie Under the Stars series.

So fire up the proton pack, gather the kids, and head on down to the Cloverdale Millennium Amphitheatre at 6386 176 Street.

The classic comedy stars Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, Dan Akroyd, and Ernie Hudson as misfit parapsychologists who get into the ghost removal business, and along the way, save the denizens of New York City from the wrath of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

It also stars the dazzling Sigourney Weaver and a scene-stealing Rick Moranis, who gets a lot of laughs as Weaver’s nerdy neighbour.

Ghostbusters spawned a movie franchise, winning over audiences with its catchy theme song, savvy send-up of the Sci-Fi and action genres, kooky exterminators-meet-the-supernatural storyline, with a whole lot of hokum about parapsychology and Sumerian gods thrown in.

The event starts at 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 13, and the movie starts at around 8:30 p.m. The first 25 people showing up in a costume will win a prize. Movie fans of all ages are encouraged to bring blankets and low-back chairs.
