GOONIES NEVER SAY DIE!

Bar opens 6:30pm | Movie starts 7:30pm | FREE weekly event

Facing foreclosure of their homes in the "Goon Docks" area of Astoria, Oregon to an expanding country club, a group of children who call themselves "the Goonies", rally for a final weekend together. The Goonies include optimist (asthmatic) Mikey Walsh, his older brother, Brand, the inventive Data, the talkative Mouth, and the overweight klutz Chunk. While rummaging through the attic, they come across a 1632 doubloon and an old treasure map for the hoard of famous pirate "One-Eyed" Willy.

SEAN ASTIN’S ONE-EYED WILLY SPEECH WAS TECHNICALLY IMPROVISED.

To get a more naturalistic performance out of Astin in the scene in which he tells his fellow Goonies about the legend of One-Eyed Willy, Donner had the child actor improvise in an offbeat way. Donner simply told Astin the story moments before they shot and had the actor tell it back to him as best as he could with cameras rolling.
