Ghostbusters fans are getting the chance to become real-life ghoul-hunters to mark the film’s cinema reboot.

Secret Cinema is cashing on the launch of Ghostbusters: Afterlife by launching a virtual experience that sees actors playing the flick’s heroes train people to become paranormal fighters.

Bosses are promising live action special effects and a blockbuster storyline to put cinema fans in the heart of the action as a living, breathing Ghostbuster.

Matthew Bennett, group creative director at Secret Cinema, said about the upcoming event: “It’s a radical new approach to live digital storytelling that features multiple locations thriving with numerous outcomes, all powered by a host of living characters, both new and old.

“Only in Secret Cinema’s virtual world can they use their skills, knowledge, bodily movements, voice and curiosity to unlock a parallel dimension of Ghostbusting action.”

Fans will be able to enter the worlds of the 80s Ghostbusters flick, which famously featured ghoul Slimer’s ectoplasm, ghost-catching proton pack devices and the Ecto-1 Ghostbusters vehicle.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife, directed by Jason Reitman, 44 – son of original series filmmaker Ivan, 74 – is due in UK cinemas on November 19.

It has cameos from the original cast of 1984’s Ghostbusters.

They include Bill Murray, 71, who played Peter Venkman, Dan Aykroyd, 69, (Ray Stantz) Ernie Hudson, 75, (Winston Zeddemore) and Sigourney Weaver, 72, (Dana Barrett.)

Harold Ramis, who starred as Ghostbusters’ genius inventor Egon Spengler, died in 2014 aged 69 from an autoimmune disease.

But footage of him appears in the new flick and the plot of the fourth film focuses on his grandkids.

The latest instalment sees the two children move with their mum to a small town in Oklahama 30 years after the events of the first Ghostbusters.

After a series of earthquakes hit the area, they uncover their links to the original team of Ghostbusters led by Venkman, Spengler and Co.

Actor Paul Rudd, who teachers the kids in the new film, warns in the trailer: “There hasn’t been a ghost sighting in 30 years, New York in the ’80s… it was like the walking dead.”

The Secret Cinema immersive experience is called Ghostbusters: The Gates Of Gozer, in reference to the demon in the 1984 film.

It launches on December 1, with presale tickets available from noon tomorrow, Wednesday October 27, at secretcinema.org.
