What could be a better end to the summer than watching the original Ghostbusters movie on a big screen drive-in style at the beach?
First released in 1984, Ghostbusters is now considered a classic, enjoying renewed interest thanks to a remake this year.
Homes with Hope and Westport Cinema Initiative have arranged a drive-in showing of the original film at Compo Beach on Saturday, October 1. Watch a huge screen from the comfort of your car and get great sound from your car’s FM radio. Bring family and friends. Joey’s by the Sea will be open for food. Proceeds from the $30 per car donation will be shared by Homes with Hope of Westport, a local charity that supports the homeless and those at-risk of homelessness by providing food, safe emergency shelter, permanent supportive housing, and the supportive services needed to achieve a more independent and self-sufficient life.
The original Ghostbusters movie is a comedy that tells the story of three parapsychologists who are called to the New York Public Library to investigate paranormal activity. They encounter the ghost of a dead librarian but are scared away when she changes into a horrifying monster. Still, the trio decides there is money to be made in paranormal investigation and elimination. They call their business “Ghostbusters,” and open their doors in a disused, run-down firehouse.
Location: Compo Beach (cars will be directed where to park).
Rain location: Westport Town Hall Auditorium
Donation: $30 per car; no beach emblem needed. — Sorry, no discounts for Charter Members for this screening.
