A second Goonies fest in Astoria
I'd be remiss if I didn't mention this event. On September 1st, as part of their "Rolling Roadshow Tour," the Alamo Drafthouse will screen "The Goonies" at Warren Field in Astoria. Corey Feldman will be there, in person, and every ticket comes with a Baby Ruth bar.
Normally this is the sort of thing I'd happily skip work for but I'm going to be on vacation elsewhere. So, please, go in my place. Enjoy. Bask in the warm glow of kitschy, north Oregon coast culture. Try it. You'll like it.
Anyway, here's their ad and a link to the tour's website:
If you're not already familiar with it, the roadshow is a ten stop movie tour that's taking organizers to various movie locations. Tonight they screened "Planet of the Apes" at Lake Powell. On the 3rd they'll blow up their inflatiable screen at Devil's Tower for "Close Encounters of the Third Kind." Other screenings on the list include "Repo Man" in LA, "The Last Picture Show" in Texas and "North By Northwest" at a cornfield in California.
Geek guru Harry Knowles is following the tour and blogging the event from the road. His updates can be found over at Ain't It Cool News, if you're curious.
