When I think of the 80’s, three things come to mind: peg-leg jeans, Michael Jackson, and Ghostbusters. The film Ghostbusters was the first movie that I ever went to without my parents. Sitting in the dark theater beside my best friend, Brad, I tried to pretend that I wasn’t scared. After all, who could be scared of a larger-than-life Staypuft Marshmallow man?!  Just keep laughing, I told myself. And I did laugh. But later that night, I found myself on the floor of my parents’ room telling them everything about the movie that was a little funny and a lot scary.

The Original Ghostbusters

This Sunday, at Telluride’s Palm Theater, you, too, can experience (or re-experience) this classic comedy-meets- horror film. Nominated for two Oscars, Ghostbusters, features Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray and Harold Ramis as three nutty parapsychologists who start a ghost catching business in Manhattan.

Ghostbusters is one of many films that Telluride Film Fest helps to bring to life in Telluride as part of its Sunday at the Palm series. This Sunday’s program will also feature two short films in addition to Ghostbusters. The shorts were the winners of Telluride TV’s First Annual Video Awards Competition and include Mission Statement (2012, 8 min.) which captures not only the beautiful landscape and fish in the Telluride area, but also showcases the personality and humor of the fly fishing world with integrity and Off the Hook (2012, 8 min.) which tells the story of accessibility and finding personal freedom from physical barriers through the mountain bike, the trail and the river.

Sunday, October 28th at 4pm at the Michael D. Palm Theatre for the Performing Arts
