Sony Pictures will celebrate Ghostbusters Day–the anniversary of the original 1984 film–this Wednesday in anticipation of new Ghostbusters film, in theaters July 15.

To kick off the event, Fathom Events will present the original film in more than 800 theaters across the U.S., with an encore showing on Sunday. Fans will also be able to catch a sneak peak of the new film at the original movie screening.

In Brooklyn, N.Y., BBQ Films will present the world’s only official immersive screening of the classic film with an experience titled "Ghostbusters HQ." The event will also offer an exclusive chance to play the new franchise’s new console game and mobile game, “Ghostbusters: Slime City,” both from Activision.

Meanwhile, Cinemark will give fans the opportunity to win one of 10 signed posters for the new film through a social media giveaway. 

Additionally, the cast of the original Ghostbusters–including Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Annie Potts–will reunite and join the new cast–Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones–with an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

Finally, Sony Pictures will launch the Ghostbusters Twitter Mission Sweepstakes on Wednesday. The sweepstakes will include prizes, such as custom Ghostbusters uniforms, every week until the release of the new film.
