We’ve got an important question for you: If there’s something strange, in your neighborhood, who you gonna call?
That’s right, movie lovers, the 1984 classic starring Bill Murray, Dan Ackroyd, Harold Ramis, Sigourney Weaver and Rick Moranis is back on the big screen this weekend in Westbrook. You probably won’t get slimed inside your car but be careful not to cross streams, it would be bad. Also, be sure to sing right along with Ray Parker, Jr., as he belts out one of the most iconic movie songs ever recorded. I ain’t afraid of no ghost! Are you?

Virtual Slumber Party
Saturday. Your house, $10 minimum suggested donation. On Facebook or mightycause.com.
Furniture Friends provides donated furniture to people in need throughout Greater Portland, and on Saturday night, they’re asking you for a little help by way of sleeping on the floor instead of your bed. Dig into your own wallet and hit up your friends and colleagues for donations, then get ready to camp out on your floor. Every hundred dollars raised helps provide a bed to someone who needs one. Have fun with this while also helping support a good cause without the support of a mattress. It’s just one night. You can do this.
