Mrs. Van Hoffman [1] [2] was a patron at the Sedgewick Hotel.


Mrs. Van Hoffman was hosting a midnight buffet for the East Side Theater Guild on the night that Slimer broke lose from his usual 12th floor dwelling. She was presumably a wealthy woman and likely a ranking member of some sort in the theater guild, since she was hosting the dinner.


  • Like the Hallway Bystander, Mrs. Van Hoffman was added during production and was never in any of the movie scripts.
