The Saturday, October 22 event promises fun for the whole family as there will be a free mini-pumpkin giveaway and painting. Stick around to take pictures with the DFW Ghostbusters fan group, a replica of the Ecto-1, and the inflatable 8-foot Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

Friendly canine companions and service dogs are welcome to join their people at the Downtown movies as long as they are on a leash and are cleaned up after.

The event is sponsored by Blooms Candy & Soda Pop Shop and Nikki’s Popcorn.
