Ever wanted to strap on a proton pack and do some supernatural pest control? Live out your Ghostbusters fantasies beginning today at their new headquarters in Williamsburg.
The setup is thanks to BBQ Films, who is celebrating the 1984 film — and the gender-swapped remake coming next month — with a "transportive experience."
“You’re transported into a different world,” explains co-founder Gabriel Rhoads, “where the movie you’re watching is almost a documentary of what’s happening around you.”
If you’ve never been to one of their events — previously, BBQ Films has brought to life fan favorites like “Back to the Future,” “Beetlejuice” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” — don’t expect to just watch a movie in a themed room: An entire setting from the film is recreated and filled with performers and interactive elements.
“This is fundamentally a social experience with the guests in the center of that action,” he says. “You get a chance to play inside this world.”
