Since 2016, fans of the iconic movie have celebrated the anniversary of the film’s release, June 8, 1984. Last Saturday, days before the anniversary, a party kicked off at Hook & Ladder 8, the New York Fire Department firehouse on North Moore Street at Varick Street, where the film’s characters had their headquarters.

Participants wearing jumpsuits and carrying proton packs posed for photos. There were several ECTO-1 Cadillac ambulances identical to the vehicles in the film, exact in every detail right down to the atonal “eee-yow” siren.
