Attention Ghostbusters fans! Now is the time to strap on your packs for an exhilarating weekend of Ghostly Fun. The dead will be rising from their graves on July 15th and 16th in Knoxville and who ya’ gonna call? No need to worry. The city’s paranormal activity will be investigated by a crack team of paranormal experts in anticipation of Ghostbusters III which is premiering at Regal Cinemas.

"The Tennessee Ghostbusters East Division raises money for children's charities," said Jonathan Scott deputy chief of the Tennessee Ghostbusters. "We are all a bunch of ghostbusters fans and we built an Ecto I that we use at special events. It's all to raise money for charity. We will pose for pictures with guest and all we ask is that they make a donation for the cause."

After the VIP movie engagement participants will be granted access to an after party at Scruffy City Hall & Preservation Pub, a local historic and popular entertainment venue. Scruffy City Hall & Preservation Pub offers six floors of live music and a unique rooftop which will be projecting Ghostbusters sentiments for the VIP party. VIP guests will enjoy loads of activities, raffles, and mixed drinks will be available at the bar.

Special Guests include: Brand Kreitzer “The Paranormal road warrior”, Amy Farley “Voices Carry Radio”, & J-Adam Smith “The Paranormal Historian”.
