Goonies Fans to Gather On North Oregon Coast in June

Published 05/14/2010

(Astoria, Oregon) – It's a major shindig of epic proportions in June on the north Oregon coast, as the town at the tip of Oregon celebrates its biggest moment on celluloid with "Never Say Die: The Goonies 25th Anniversary."

Eager to revisit secret caves, treacherous traps and hidden treasure, fans will gather in historic Astoria, Oregon, to celebrate the anniversary of the cult classic film “The Goonies” June 4 - 7. Over the four-day event, Goonies lovers can retrace the steps of characters in the film by touring filming locations including the famous “Goonies House,” bowl at “Chunk’s Bowling Alley” and more, plus have the chance to mingle with original cast members including Corey Feldman, Jeff Cohen, Joe Pantoliano and Curt Hanson.

As part of the 25th anniversary festivities, the new Oregon Film Museum will open its doors for the first time. Converted from the old Clatsop County Jail featured in “The Goonies,” the museum is dedicated to preserving and celebrating the art and legacy of Oregon films and film-making.  One of the many highlights is a special exhibit in the actual jail cell from, “The Goonies,” as well as stories, mementos and props from famous movies made in Astoria and across Oregon, such as “Kindergarten Cop,” “Animal House,” “Twilight” and more.

Another of the weekend’s top highlights will include a special announcement from Warner Home Video, delivered by “The Goonies” cast members.

Original cast members and other celebrities will be on-hand to mark the occasion, including:

Corey Feldman, who played “Mouth,” plus his band Truth Movement

Jeff Cohen, the hilarious and beloved “Chunk”

Joe Pantoliano, who appeared as the villainous “Francis Fratelli”

Curt Hanson, who portrayed “Mr. Perkins,” the richest man in Astoria

The alternative band The Ataris, whose album “So Long, Astoria” was inspired by a trip to visit Goonies sites

The weekend of festivities includes bus tours of filming sites, including an interior tour of the house; a red carpet event and showing of "The Goonies" and a new documentary about the film at the Libery Theater on Friday, plus additional movie showings throughout the weekend at other local theaters.

Stars from the movie will be signing autographs, along with local residents sharing memories from being on set. An '80s night out will be held on Friday in downtown Astoria with costume contests, music, bowling at "Chunk's Bowling Alley," along with other features.

There will be a "Goonies" themed concert on Saturday at Warren Field, featuring Corey Feldman's band, Truth Movement, the alternative band The Ataris, bluegrass band The Whiskey Rebellion and the pop punk band Troy's Bucket. Look for hand-crafted “Goonies” beers created by local breweries as well.

Goonies Rock, near Cannon Beach

There will be a “Truffle Shuffle” 5k Run/Walk on Monday, and the new Oregon Film Museum grand opening and “Goonies” exhibit,

At nearby Cannon Beach, in Ecola State Park, there will be a picnic for fans and cast members. One of the final scenes of the movie – with the rock with a hole in it – was filmed in this spot. That rock is now called “Goonies Rock.”

Visit www.GooniesAnniversary.com for complete event details. Official memorabilia, including t-shirts, hats, glassware, collectible doubloons and more, will be available at the event headquarters affectionately named The Goon Docks, located at 15th and Marine Dr. in Astoria.

“The Goonies” was filmed at a variety of locations across the historic maritime community of Astoria, Ore. The former canning capital of the world, Astoria is located on Oregon’s North Coast, where the Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean, 90 miles northwest of Portland. Astoria is the oldest American settlement west of the Rockies and will celebrate its 200th anniversary in 2011. Still home to a working waterfront, Astoria boasts a vibrant cultural scene including art galleries, museums, restaurants, shops and Victorian homes.

Tickets are now on sale and will be available for most individual events, such as $5 for movie showings, $25 for a bus tour to film locations and $40 to attend the concert. Weekend passes will be available for $130.  Purchase tickets at www.GooniesAnniversary.com or call the Astoria-Warrenton Area Chamber of Commerce at (800) 875-6807 for more information.
