[UPDATE] Paul has let the cat out of the bag – the event is a Ustream screening of Ghostbusters, as it aired on ABC 20 years ago today. The screening will include the original commercials (retro!), but more importantly, this is one of the fews times since the original airing that most people will get to see the alternate takes used to remove the bad words (ie Mr. Pecker becomes Wally Wick.) The links to the streaming will be up on Spook Central, about a half-hour to 20 minutes before showtime.
Without going into details just now (maybe tomorrow – I’ve been asked to keep shush), try and clear a couple of hours starting at 8PM EST (5PM PST) for a special event. You should have the latest Flash version installed and if you’d like to chat with GBFans members directly, you should make sure you have an account. Check back here tomorrow, or go to Spook Central, for an important link.
I will hopefully be able to attend, but 5PM PST isn’t when I’m at home, typically.
From Spook Central – come join us! Password is “Ghostbusters”
