See a midnight shadowcast of Ghostbusters in NYC


I noticed this while checking out the schedule at the IFC Center the other day. It looks like they’re doing special midnight screenings of Ghostbusters on Friday, October 26th and Saturday, October 27th. The screenings will feature the Minions of Gozer, who’ll add a performative twist to the proceedings. The event is described as follows:

While honoring traditions built by Rocky Horror fans across the world, the Minions of Gozer bring a twist to the art of the shadowcast, with a show chock full of all the Ghostbusters moments you’ve never actually seen but always wanted to. Like the time that Egon tried to drill a hole through his head. The undersea, unexplained mass sponge migration. And even Louis Tully’s high-speed workout. No scene is too big; no unseen scene is too big! The Minions of Gozer are ready to entertain you!

According the Minions of Gozer website, there will be a Slimer puppet (“capable of ‘sliming’ the audience”), proton packs that shoot silly string, and a dude in a Stay Puft suit. If you’re in NYC and don’t have any plans this weekend, this could be worth looking into.
