GFF19: Ghostbusters at Argyle Street Arches

Details

Following two sold out screenings of The Matrix, Argyle Street Arches was transformed for another sci-fi stint with Ghostbusters. Attendees followed in the footsteps of Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray, hunting for ghosts to bust at two spooktacular screenings of director Ivan Reitman’s 1984 supernatural comedy.

During the afternoon, our next generation of Ghostbusters attended a family-friendly screening - proving that kids ain’t afraid of no ghosts! They drew their favourite ghosts in the Ghost Book and enjoyed some messy fun at the ‘make-your-own-slime’ workshop, recreating the iconic ectoplasm from the film. At the ‘Cult Classic’ screening later that evening, an audience of more seasoned parapsychologists were able to spookify their drinks at the Mixology Lab with some ghastly garnish, such as monster eyeballs (juicy popping boba balls) and ghost essence (sparkle drops).

The Ghostbusters of Glasgow were on also on site at both screenings, donning full ghost-busting get-up, complete with hi-tech proton packs and ghost traps - keeping their eyes peeled for poltergeists and scanning for spirits that may have snuck in. Their incredible cosplay made for the perfect photo-op, with children and adults alike lining up to have their photo taken with Venkman, Stantz, Spengler and Zeddemore.

The interior architecture of Argyle Street Arches really enhanced the atmosphere of the event, echoing the Ghostbusters’ famous New York City firehouse headquarters. Print Clan were on the scene too, providing custom screen-printed t-shirt and tote bag souvenirs to mark these special events.
