About the performance

Bring your proton pack and join the original paranormal investigation and elimination team as the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra performs the score to the timeless 1984 supernatural comedy and cult hit Ghostbusters, live to film.

Experience Ivan Reitman’s award-winning film screened live while the MSO performs Elmer Bernstein’s Grammy-nominated score and the retro-classic chart-topping theme song, Ghostbusters by Ray Parker Jr.

‘I remember seeing this movie when I was a kid and was a big fan of the Ray Parker Jr. hit title song. The Elmer Bernstein score is filled with fun, spookiness and classical orchestral moments, taking us all back to 1984! A real blast from the past!’

- Benjamin Northey, conductor.

With an all-star line-up, re-live the hair-raising paranormal adventures with the original Ghostbusters trio: Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, the eccentric parapsychologists who start a ghost-catching business in New York City, as they capture their first ghost Slimer and their first god of destruction, Gozer the Gozerian. Encounter Sigourney Weaver as the Ghostbusters’ first client turned Gatekeeper, Rick Moranis as an accountant turned Keymaster, and Ernie Hudson as the Ghostbusters’ first recruit.
