Return of Shot on Site Summer - Ghostbusters 2016 Locations, Part 10 (Map & List)

 By Paul Rudoff on Aug. 5, 2018 at 12:00 PM , Categories: Filming Locations, The 2016 Parody Remake , Tags:

Welcome to Spook Central's continuing Return of Shot on Site Summer event wherein we take a look at all of the filming locations for Paul Feig's 2016 Ghostbusters (aka Ghostbusters: Answer The Call). Every Sunday - henceforth dubbed Shot on Site Sundays - at Noon (Eastern) for several weeks (all parts available here in reverse order), we will go through the entire movie from start to finish telling and showing you where everything was filmed in or around Boston, Massachusetts; with a great deal of quick shots in Manhattan, New York; and one spot in Los Angeles, California. We will be utilizing the Theatrical and Extended cuts of the movie from the Blu-ray, as that provides the most locations than just the Theatrical Cut alone. With that in mind, SPOILER WARNING if you read any further... though I suspect that whomever wants to see the movie already has, and those who want to avoid it won't care. Those in the latter camp have probably stopped reading this post already. That's cool. There's lots of material on Spook Central about the original movies and animated series for you to look at.

The majority of locations were identified and researched by Matthew Jordan back in 2016, way before anyone else did it. Secondary thanks go to all of the fine folks on the internet who documented the filming of the movie in 2015, which helped in Matt's research. A few locations were identified by me (Paul Rudoff) and MrMichaelT. The title graphic seen at the top was created by Matthew Jordan, based on an idea by Paul Rudoff. Now that that's out of the way, let us continue...

For the final part of this Summer-long event, we present Matt's Google Map of locations, followed by a list of locations ordered geographically. This is useful if you want to visit the locations in person; especially those in Boston where they are all a stone's throw away from each other. To use the map, click on the icon in the upper left corner (it looks like an arrow pointing to an open square). This will bring out the list of locations for you to explore.
