"Ghostbusters" is one of the five selections for this year's Point Fish Fry & A Flick lineup.

Point Fish Fry & A Flick's 2014 lineup calls "Ghostbusters," four other films

When there's something strange in your neighborhood ... drive down to Discovery World on the lakefront, grab some fish and a tasty brew, and watch some movies with your fellow Milwaukee film fanatics. Also: call Ghostbusters.

This morning, Point Fish Fry & A Flick announced the lineup of films for one of the city's coolest ever-growing summer traditions. As usual, the five-movie collection is an entertaining mix of new hits and old beloved treasures. And as you may have guessed from our careful, totally vague hinting, the 1984 supernatural comedy classic "Ghostbusters" is one of the chosen five.

Here is the complete lineup:

July 18: "American Hustle"
Aug. 1: "Caddyshack"
Aug. 15: "Ride Along"
Sept. 5: "Ghostbusters"
Sept. 19: "The Big Lebowski"

While the movies themselves begin dusk, the festivities start each night at 5 p.m. with a traditional Wisconsin Fish Fry provided by Bartolotta's. A wide selection of beer and spirits (not of the Slimer variety) will be available as well – including a free Stevens Point beer and CiderBoys tasting before each film. There are also some new additions to the Fish Fry & A Flick menu this year, including shrimp, poutine (fries, cheese curds and gravy), hot dogs, brats, fries and other assorted snack items.

It should be a good time. And if you miss it, it would a disaster of biblical proportions. I mean Old Testament, real wrath of God type stuff. Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies, rivers and seas boiling, 40 years of darkness, earthquakes, volcanos, the dead rising from the grave, human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria.
