Ghostbusters car visits White Rose this weekend

Film fans can get into the Halloween spirit as a replica of the iconic Ecto-1 car pulls into White Rose Shopping Centre to celebrate the launch of Sony Pictures’ highly anticipated Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which can be seen exclusively in cinemas from Thursday 18 November 2021.

Visitors can snap a selfie with the vehicle and stand inside a super-sized ‘ghost trap’ this weekend (23-24 October 2021) ahead of the film’s UK release on next month.

Screens will also show snippets of the new movie and Lego™ Ecto-1 models will be on display, with a special competition for a chance to win a private screening of the movie and Ghostbusters-themed goodies via social media.

Steven Foster, Centre Director at White Rose Shopping Centre, said:

“Film fans of all ages are excited to see the new Ghostbusters: Afterlife movie, so we’re helping to get them in the spirit by welcoming the famous Ecto-1 here at White Rose. We’re sure the film will be a big hit, so make sure to book your cinema tickets in advance so you don’t miss out.”

White Rose is the perfect family day-out destination – as well as seeing the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 car, visitors this half term can enjoy a covered outdoor play area, restaurants appealing to all ages, activities such as The Escapologist escape room, and stores including The Entertainer and Build-a-Bear Workshop – plus free parking. 

Ecto-1 and the ‘ghost trap’ will be at White Rose on 23 & 24 October and Ghostbusters: Afterlife will be showing on one of the biggest IMAX screens in Yorkshire at White Rose’s 11-screen Cineworld from 18 November. For details, visit
