Who you gonna call?
"Ghostbusters" is back in theaters this weekend for its 30th anniversary
The landmark movie is playing in the Charleston area at Citadel Mall in West Ashley and Palmetto Grande in Mount Pleasant.
Bill Murray, part owner of the Charleston River Dogs and a familiar sight on city streets, leads the cast as Dr. Peter Venkman, with Dan Akroyd and Harold Ramis at his side.
The movie originally hit theaters in 1984 and was considered groundbreaking at the time for its special effects.
The film has been restored and remastered in super-high resolution, according to a news release from Sony Pictures Entertainment.
A Blu-ray edition with special features will be released Sept. 16.
For those who need a reminder, here's a synopsis of the movie from Sony Pictures:
"University parapsychologists Dr. Peter Venkman (Murray), Dr. Raymond Stanz (Aykroyd) and Dr. Egon Spengler (Ramis) lose a research grant when their experiment methodology is proven to be bogus. The team decides to go into business for themselves and open "Ghostbusters," a ghost removal service. After struggling to get on their feet, they are summoned to investigate the strange happenings in Dana Barrett's (Sigourney Weaver) Central Park West apartment. What they discover is that all Manhattan is being besieged by ghosts and other worldly demons through a portal in her building."
