United States. 1985. Directed by Richard Donner. (114 mins.) Rated PG.
Filmed in Oregon! A group of young misfits who call themselves The Goonies discover an ancient map and set out on a quest to find a legendary pirate's long-lost treasure.
We are proud to participate in the Oregon Film and Travel Oregon celebration of the 35th anniversary of The Goonies in support of the upcoming events taking place in Astoria in June!
It’s been 35 years since audiences went in search of treasure with a lovable band of kids from Astoria into the caves beneath the northern Oregon coastline and Ecola State Park. To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the film, Oregon Film and Travel Oregon will offer public screenings of the movie in five cities around the state—from Salem Cinema to BendFilm, Baker City, La Grande and Coos Bay. This combined effort and tour is to support The Goondocks and Goonies Day in Astoria June 4-7, 2020.
Possibly the most renowned of all #OregonMade films, “The Goonies” remains a seminal experience for generations of filmgoers and self-described Goonies around the world who never say die. Each year, thousands of people gather in Astoria to celebrate the film and iconic setting of the movie through combined efforts spearheaded by the Astoria-Warrenton Area Chamber of Commerce, the Clatsop County Historical Society and the Oregon Film Museum (who’s building is the actual set for the opening jail-break scene of the film) with support from dozens of community members.
“This celebration is dedicated to the amazing Goonies fans and the special places where it was filmed,” said Todd Davidson, Travel Oregon CEO. “We hope this June's events will find Goonies lovers on location reliving one of the most beloved coming-of-age stories of the 1980s.”
