Ghostbusters Now Included in the National Film Registry

(via Variety)

Not that it was going to be an issue, but Egon (played by the late Harold Ramis) will definitely not be forgotten now.

The National Film Registry is an archive kept by the Library of Congress to ensure specific films within the cinematic canon are especially preserved as their significance to the art of film cannot be emphasized enough.

So, the original Ghostbusters, released in 1984, has just made the cut along side a film by one of film’s very first innovators, Eadweard Muybridge and will live on in perpetuity in one of country’s highest regarded collections.

Perhaps, Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters, for the potential cultural milestone it’s set to make, might make it in there as well?
