25th Anniversary of The Goonies!

The-Goonies-DVDIf 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:

And now, a little trip back to the house in Astoria, made famous from the film:

Help us celebrate the 25th anniversary of The Goonies by sharing your thoughts and memories of this beloved adventure film that still lives on within the hearts of millions of former 80s kids.

    Wish I could have made it to Astoria, but celebrated by watching it with my young daughter on Saturday. Still love that movie 25 years later.

    Here is my Kickin’ it Old School issue that I did last year for Richard Donner’s birthday:

    Loved the movie when it first came out and it still holds up to this day. was kind of shocked they didn’t do a 2nd one.

    I was 8 or 9 years old in ’85 when Goonies came out and it completely blew me away. To this day, it is the one movie I primarily identify my childhood with. I loved other movies (Cocoon touched my heart in a huge way and still makes me cry to this day) but Goonies really inspired me with the sense of mysterious history and high adventure! Love it.
