Thanks to MrMichaelT, we now have written transcripts of Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters (2016) (aka Ghostbusters: Answer The Call). The Ghostbusters transcript was added as an "alternate" .rtf file on the Ghostbusters Scripts page. The Ghostbusters (2016) transcript can be downloaded here in .rtf format.

In addition to those, MrMichaelT also put together a list of filming locations as seen in the movie. This is sort of like the Movie Rundown series I ran last Summer, but without the photos and other extravagances that I added. The entire text of his list appears below without any alterations.

I gave the new GB84 transcript a glance. It seemed odd that he chose to do it in the past tense.

That may have just been my high school English teacher, though, who always told us to 'write about literature in the present tense'.

Comment from: Mrmichaelt [Visitor]

It was a pragmatic choice on my part. Writing it in past tense helped me save time as I added information to articles in the wiki. I hope I'm not going to be seeing a new Ghostbusters Pet Peeves YouTube video about how you hate the past tense, Alex. :P
