With a sneak peek at the new Ghostbusters

The original Ghostbusters is returning to select American theaters for two nights this June, just in time to rescue those fans who need to brush up on the series before Paul Feig's all-female reboot hits the big screen in July. Fathom Events is going to rerelease the 1984 classic in over 750 theaters around the US on June 8th, which happens to be the 32nd anniversary of the movie's theatrical debut. (They're also holding encore screenings on June 12th.)

If you make your way to one of these anniversary screenings, you'll be rewarded with more than just the chance to watch Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd roam New York in search of the paranormal. Each showing of the original Ghostbusters includes an exclusive look at Feig's reboot more than a month before it premieres on July 15th, so the screenings are bridging the gap between two generations of parapsychological adventure. Unfortunately, you'll have to wait a bit longer to secure a ticket: they're not going on sale until next Friday, May 6th, at which point you can buy them through Fathom's website.
