Goonies do say "reunion"

The Goonies, quite possibly the greatest film ever made, will be celebrating its 20th anniversery this June. Preliminary plans are coming together for a shindig in Astoria, where a good chunk (no pun intended) of the movie was shot. The organizers have registered a domain name and put up a site but there's not much there yet. The following info comes from this site:




"Goonies 20th Anniversary Celebration

June 3-5, 2005

CONFRIMED EVENTS:

The Columbian Theater, located at 11th & Marine in downtown Astoria, will be showing The Goonies on the silver screen several times over the weekend. The Columbian serves gourmet pizza throughout the theater and beer & wine in the balcony.

Bus tours of the movie sites confirmed! Groups of 25 will be chauffeured around the region to visit sites seen in The Goonies, including an interior tour of the Goonie House and a stop at Ecola State Park, the route will include the old County Jail, Warren Field, "Mouth's House", Lower Columbia Bowling Alley, Astoria Coffee Co., and the historic Flavel House.

Jeff Cohen, the actor who played "Chunk", will be in Astoria to perform his multimedia program "Growing Up Goonie". Jeff talks about the movie, his cast mates (who all still stay in touch), the new Goonies movie, shows clips and selects lucky audience members to compete in the Truffle Shuffle dance contest. Jeff will sign autographs when the show is over.

Opportunities for more conversation with Jeff and those who were involved in filming in Astoria can be had by attending a special breakfast or dinner, both being planned by the organizers. Not everyone will be able to attend these events, so register early if you are interested!"


I've already "visited" in the Goonie house but I didn't get a chance to see the attic, which is no doubt still filled with pirate relics. I know where I'll be that weekend.
