The Lincoln Center is a complex of buildings in New York's Upper West Side dedicated to the performing arts.

HistoryEdit

Primary Canon HistoryEdit

In 1984, Peter Venkman approached Dana Barrett with new information about her case as she and Violinist exited Avery Fisher Hall at the conclusion of a session with a guest conductor.

Secondary Canon HistoryEdit

Roger Baugh took Janine Melnitz to a special performance for charity of "Don Giovanni" but it was interrupted by the manifestation of Phantom of the Opera. The Ghost Smashers made their public debut at the Metropolitan Opera House and atomized the phantom. They waited up outside the Lincoln Center and "greeted" Ray Stantz and Egon Spengler.

TriviaEdit

  • The Lincoln center scene was the first scene shot between Bill Murray and Sigourney Weaver. [1]
  • For the long shots at Lincoln Center, the filmmakers had to loop the dialogue because the fountain in the background created so much noise. For the closeups, when the fountain was out of frame, they had the water turned off. [2]
  • Modified dialogue was created during rehearsal such as "I respect you as an artist and as a dresser", typed up and inserted into the script for shooting the next morning. [3]
  • In the Ghostbusters II August 5, 1988 draft, Peter and Lane go on a date to see the Bolshoi Ballet perform "Giselle" at the Lincoln Center's Vivian Beaumont Theater. [4]
  • On cover A of Ghostbusters Volume 2 Issue #6, the pair of tickets from Ghostbusters Volume 2 Issue #13 are on top of Roger.
  • On page 15 of Ghostbusters Volume 2 Issue #13, there is a note on Dana's refrigerator that reveals she has a performance on February 28th.
