Spielberg Classic Comes Back to the Big Screen

“Hey you, guys” This 1985 masterpiece truly delivers. It has it all: action, adventure, drama and romance. It is a true edge of your seat thrill ride featuring a rag tag group of misfits, complete with ruthless criminals, pirate treasure, and really scared cheerleader. Led by Mikey Walsh (Sean Astin) and Clark Devereaux “Mouth” (Corey Feldman) “The Goonies” embark on a mission to save the neighbourhood from foreclosure and demolition, and stop the construction of a golf course. Sure to make you laugh, cry, smile and scream. From One-eyed Willie’s map and the Villainous crooks, to the underground caverns and booby traps, it’s pure excitement from start to finish as Steven Spielberg and Richard Donner, the makers of “Indiana Jones”, “Gremlins” and “Superman” team up to create the adventure of a lifetime.

  • When rocks are falling from the cave ceiling, Jonathan Ke Quan (Data) screams “Holy S-H-I-T!” He said he spelled the expletive because his mother made him promise not to use any bad language in the movie.
  • The bats were made of crumpled, black pieces of crepe paper that were shot out of an air cannon.
  • The screenplay was written by Chris Columbus, who also wrote Gremlins (1984). There is an Easter egg to Gremlins. When Chunk calls the police, the officer says, “[This call] is like the prank about creatures that multiply when you throw water on them.”
