Most likely, you didn’t get a chance to check out the Ghostbusters VR experience that was available at Madam Tussauds in Times Square last summer. But if you happen to be in Washington DC sometime soon (maybe because you’re protesting the inauguration of a certain someone), then you’ll get another opportunity to check out an immersive Ghostbusters experience.
Escape Rooms are all the rage right now. If you haven’t heard of this fun phenomenon, it’s basically a puzzle that you’re a part of, almost like a game of Clue. You’re stuck in a room, and you have to solve puzzles with the various items that are in the room in order to escape. One company in Washington DC has made their experience even more unique by tying their Escape Rooms into movies, and one of them is a Ghostbusters Escape Room. Get a sneak preview after the jump.

Cinderella story. Outta nowhere. A former greenskeeper, now, about to become the owner of a new restaurant in Chicago.
When Bill Murray had a bit part in the golf comedy Caddyshack, he was just beginning what would become one of the most illustrious comedy careers of all time. Now he’s bringing a new restaurant to the Midwest inspired by the 1980 comedy that not only turned him into the most memorable groundskeeper on the big screen, but was also co-written by his brother Brian Doyle Murray along with Ghostbusters scribe Harold Ramis and National Lampoon writer Douglas Kenney.

Because some movies actually shoot on location instead of on a sound stage, fans have a chance to visit the real life settings of some of their favorite movies and TV shows. However, this can create some frustration with those in charge of maintaining said locations that are constantly visited by tourists. Case in point, the Tanner family home from the sitcom Full House.
The house of the Tanner family from ABC’s sitcom Full House actually exists in San Francisco. The interior isn’t anything like that of the actual house, but it’s the exterior with the red door that fans have been anxious to snap a photo of whenever they’re in The City by the Bay. Unfortunately for fans, the house hasn’t looked the way it does in the show for years now, and the owner of the house was not keen on the couple hundred people per day who would stop by the house for a picture. But now checking out the Full House home just got a little easier. Read More »
