Sony Pictures is bringing Ghostbusters back to the big screen for a limited engagement this October. The studio has announced that the classic comedy will play in approximately 500 theaters nationwide (plus select theaters in Canada and various international markets) for one showtime on October 13th, 20th, and 27th in 2K digital with 5.1 surround sound . If someone asks you, “Are you going to see Ghostbusters on the big screen?” you say, “Yes!” Details will be posted parkcirus.com and fans can follow Ghostbusters on Facebook and Twitter to be the first to know the details on the release.
I can only assume this is Sony’s way of gauging interest in a third Ghostbusters before finally giving the greenlight and shooting, as Dan Aykroyd recently claimed, in spring 2012. It will be interesting to see how many people feel good from bustin’. Hit the jump for the full press release.
