Cinema scares up screenings of ‘Ghostbusters’

Cinemark continues its “Classic Series,” a parade of digitally restored films brimming with nostalgia. The series will screen the 1984 paranormal comedy adventure Ghostbusters at 2 p.m. Sunday and at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Denton Cinemark 14, 2825 Unicorn Lake.

Ghostbusters is the story of three unemployed parapsychology professors — Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Raymond Stantz (Dan Aykroyd) and Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis) — who start a business removing spooks from their favorite haunts. Business booms, but so do some of those things that go bump in the night. The team of ghost catchers overestimate both their smarts and their prowess, and stumble on the door to a new dimension.

Tickets cost $6.50 for matinees and $8.50 for the twilight screening. To buy tickets, visit
