Beware the Moon: Ghostbusters

Saturday 6th August, 2022

Dudley Castle | 19:30 - 23:00

Are you troubled by strange noises in the middle of the night? Do you experience feelings of dread in your basement or attic? Have you or your family ever seen a spook, spectre or ghost? If the answer is yes, then don’t wait another minute. Pick up the phone and call the professionals…

Ghostbusters is a film that needs little in the way of introduction - excellent comedy, stellar cast, and one of the most frequently quoted movies around. That is why we’re thrilled to be bringing the badass parapsychologist team to Dudley this summer to mark the long-awaited return of ‘Beware the Moon’, a screening event that turns Dudley Castle into an open air cinema for your delight and enjoyment.

You might already know the drill by now, but in case you need a reminder - there will be hot food, a licensed bar, mood-lighting & special effects, and as always a surprise or two thrown in for good measure. Don’t forget to bring along a chair and/or a blanket.
