Awesome Events: Goonies 25th Anniversary in Astoria!

Goonies fans will unite this summer in Astoria, OR to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the film's release. Astoria, for those not indoctrinated into all-things-Goonies, is where the movie is set, much of it was filmed there, and the town might as well be considered the Motherland for Goonies fans worldwide.

The celebration will run from Friday, June 4 - Monday, June 7. Jeff Cohen (Chunk), Corey Feldman (Mouth), and Joey Pants (Francis Fratelli) are schedule to attend, as well as others.Check out the official website for a list of events that span the whole long weekend. It's kind of a bummer that most of the events cost upwards of $20 each, but let's face it, this once-in-a-lifetime event is for hardcore fans only. In addition to "Meet and Greets" with the cast throughout the weekend and the film showing on Friday night, there's also bus tours aroudn Astoria highlighting the filming locations, an 80's Night Out on Saturday, and a Goonies Fan Film Festival.

In the meantime, get your Goon on over at

Hey You Guys!!

I just rewatched this movie with my wife (who was watching for the first time). Brought back a lot of childhood memories.
