On June 8, 1984, the world fi­nally knew the an­swer to the ques­tion “Who you gonna call?”

That’s when the first in­stall­ment of the “Ghost­busters” fran­chise de­buted at movie the­aters. Pro­duced and di­rected by Ivan Reit­man, “Ghost­busters” starred Bill Mur­ray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hud­son and Harold Ramis as a quirky ghost-hunt­ing team.

“Ghost­busters” spawned a hit 1989 se­quel, “Ghost­busters II,” also co-writ­ten by Aykroyd and Ramis, and two an­i­mated tele­vi­sion se­ries. Now, an­other in­stall­ment is on the way. The next “Ghost­busters,” this time with an all-fe­male team, hits the­aters July 15.

Can’t wait that long? In cel­e­bra­tion of the movie’s an­niver­sary, Cine­mark movie the­aters are show­ing the orig­i­nal on the big screen this week.

June 9, 1973, is prob­a­bly a mem­o­rable day for our lo­cal horse-lovers. It was on that day that Sec­re­tar­iat won Amer­ica’s cov­eted Tri- ple Crown (the Ken­tucky Derby the Preak­ness, and the Bel­mont Stakes). At that time, horse fans hadn’t seen that hap­pen since Ci­ta­tion in 1948.

An­other ex­cit­ing (or should we say elec­tri­fy­ing?) his­tor­i­cal mo­ment hap­pened June 10, 1752. On that stormy day, Ben­jamin Franklin took out a kite with a key in a thun­der­storm and col­lected a charge in a Ley­den jar, en­abling him to demon­strate the elec­tri­cal na­ture of light­ning.
