Movies for Minis | Ghostbusters (1984)

When: Saturday, October 29, 2022, 10:00am
Price: General Admission $5 | Tickets Required

Show off your best costumes and join us for a screening of this classic 1984 film, Ghostbusters starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, and Sigourney Weaver. Along with the movie we will also be creating glow in the dark mason jar skulls and ghosts for children to take home and continue to celebrate the season. 

A trio of university parasychologists lose their research grant and decide to open their own business, "Ghostbusters," and almost at once are summoned to investigate the strange happenings in a Central Park West apartment. What they discover is that all Manhattan is being besieged by other worldly demons. 

You can choose to register for the 10am – 12:45pm session or the 1:15pm – 4:00pm session. In both sessions, we will host the arts and crafts workshop followed by the film screening.  

Location: The Museum of the City of New York in Ronay Menschel Hall
