'Ghost' Is Being Screened In UK Cinemas To Mark Its 30th Anniversary

'Ghost' Is Being Screened In UK Cinemas To Mark Its 30th Anniversary

We could talk about Ghost all day long.

It's the film that made pottery sexy, had us all wishing we had a love like Sam and Molly's, and inspired swathes of ladies to head to the hairdressers for a pixie crop while clutching a photo of Demi Moore.

It's hard to believe the 1990 romantic thriller (which earnt nearly $506 million at the box office) came out 30 years ago as it's still just as entertaining to watch today - even if we are left bawling at the end.
