Smash hit comedy Ghostbusters will be shown at Newhaven Fort on Saturday November 2 at 2pm.

Ghostbusters (1984) stars Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, as well as Sigourney Weaver and Rick Moranis.

It was the most successful comedy of the 1980s, grossing $509 million in today’s money.

The movie has since appeared on numerous lists of the 100 greatest movies of all time.

The screening is being organised by Filmspot which brings movies to heritage locations in East Sussex.

It will begin at 2pm. Tickets are available from Newhaven Fort at £6 for adults and £4 for children. Visit or
