Casper the friendly ghost is back on the big screen downtown Saturday at 7 pm.

I remember when this movie was in theaters. It was cast with a young Christina Ricci, and Bill Pullman as the main characters. Pullman plays a afterlife therapist Dr.James Harvey, and Ricci his daughter, Kat. 22 years ago the special effects were just good enough to give us a live action version of this classic children's cartoon.

To be honest I would go just to be inside the iconic Pines Theater. When they show a now Halloween Classic for the kids, it's a slam dunk. So come check out the flick days before we get ready to trick-or-treat. Best part is the price, it's all general seating and it's just $5 to get in. So load up your little bone bags and come check out Casper the friendly ghost, and his not so friendly friends.
