'Ghostbusters' at the Rialto a fundraiser for YANA




Keep the Halloween celebration going while celebrating the 30th anniversary of this epic ’80s blockbuster.

Saturday, Nov. 1 at 10 a.m. ADI Benefits invites Comox Valley families to enjoy some post Halloween fun at the Rialto Theatre to benefit You Are Not Alone (YANA).

“Who you gonna call?”

If you grew up in the 1980s you will likely know the answer to this question. Adam Duncan, president of ADI Benefits, grew up in the 80s and admits his all-time favourite films are from that era.

“I think it was a great decade filled with great films,” says Duncan. “I can name at least a dozen I’d like to see one more time on the big screen.”

Duncan wanted to do something fun for family and friends last year, so he rented the Rialto Theatre and invited the community out for a special showing of “Back To The Future.”

Since moving to the Comox Valley he has been a supporter of YANA and thought the event would be a cool fundraiser. It went so well he decided to do it again.

“Halloween seems like a perfect time of year for Ghostbusters and the morning after Halloween is perfect for a movie day,” continues Duncan. “This is a great community and I’d just like to show my appreciation for being a part of it.”

YANA is a Comox Valley charity offering help to local families who need to travel to access medical treatment for their children.

Doors open at 9:30 a.m. for the 10 a.m. showing. There’s a prize for the best costume, though pyjamas are fine too. The concession will be open and offering special prices. Admission is by donation to YANA, with a suggested $5 minimum at the door.

Please RSVP to with the number in your family or group.

Parental Advisory: This is the full movie version and was rated PG at its original release in 1984.
