SYNOPSIS

CLEANIN’ UP THE TOWN: Remembering Ghostbusters delivers the most complete account of how the classic film Ghostbusters was made.  UK  brother and sister team of director Anthony Bueno and producer Claire Bueno have travelled all over the United States from Lily Dale to Jacksonville cross country to San Diego, LA and San Francisco, gathering interviews with over 40 members of the cast and crew. Responsible for bringing these stories to life include actors Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson and Sigourney Weaver, director Ivan Reitman, producers Joe Medjuck and Michael C. Gross, Visual effects crew include Richard Edlund, John Bruno and editor Sheldon Kahn.

Made in 1984 in the pre digital age when special effects were still evolving. Ghostbusters was an instant hit followed up five years later with Ghostbusters 2. Now with a string of spin offs from cartoons, video games to the new Ghostbusters directed by Jason Reitman and due for release in 2020,  CLEANIN’ UP THE TOWN: Remembering Ghostbusters celebrates why the love of Ghostbusters  has lasted over 35 years and sparked the imagination of so many.
