If you happen to live near the town of Astoria, Oregon, you are well aware of today’s significance. This past weekend, actors Sean Astin, Corey Feldman, Jeff Cohen, Joe Pantoliano, and director Richard Donner, arrived in Astoria for a full weekend of celebration in honor of the 25th anniversary of the cult-classic, The Goonies. Released on June 7, 1985, the comedy-adventure has since endeared itself to millions of fans around the world.
The Goonies tells the story of a group of misfit kids who must save their home from being turned into a golf course. The key to their success lies in a treasure map they find in the attic. With map in hand, they embark on a wild adventure, through a labyrinth of underground tunnels and caves riddled with booby traps, as they search for the buried treasure of a 17th century pirate named “One-Eyed Willie.” Here’s a look at the original trailer for the film:
