When physicist Erin Gilbert discovers a book she had co-authored about ghosts has been reprinted and might jeopardize her tenure at Columbia, she is reunited with Abby Yates who has continued her pursuit of the paranormal with eccentric engineer Jillian Holtzmann. The trio’s encounter with an apparition at a museum is recorded and goes viral, terminating Erin’s dreams of tenure but rekindling her passion in seeking out and studying ghosts. They are joined by transit worker Patty Tolan after her own close encounter with a ghost on the subway line, and begin to realize that New York City may have a bigger ghost problem than officials want to admit – and are determined to find out who is behind it.
With a stellar comic cast including Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones, this reboot of the 1980’s favourite also features cameos by original Ghostbusters cast members Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, and Annie Potts. Ghostbusters is available to reserve at the Haliburton County Public Library.
