Never Say Die! Goonies 20th Anniversary Celebration
June 3-5, 2005

Goonies fans from around the world are planning to gather in Astoria for the 20th anniversary of the release of The Goonies which has achieved “cult film” status.

The Columbian Theater, located at 11th & Marine in downtown Astoria, will be showing The Goonies on the silver screen several times over the weekend. The Columbian serves gourmet pizza throughout the theater and beer & wine in the balcony. www.columbian-voodoo.com
In addition to the film, we will be showing the latest Goonies documentary with each showing. www.thegoonies.org/documentary.htm

3 hour bus tours of the movie sites! Groups of 25 will be chauffeured around the region to visit sites seen in The Goonies, including an interior tour of the Goonie House and a stop at Ecola State Park*, the route will include the old County Jail, Warren Field, "Mouth's House", Lower Columbia Bowling Alley, Astoria Coffee Co., and the historic Flavel House. The only way to access the interior of the Goonies House is by taking the bus tour. *If heavy traffic conditions prevail, Ecola State Park may be removed from the tour.

Jeff Cohen, the actor who played "Chunk", will be in Astoria to perform his multimedia program "Growing Up Goonie". Jeff talks about the movie, his cast mates (who all still stay in touch), the possibility of a new Goonies movie, shows clips and selects lucky audience members to compete in the Truffle Shuffle dance contest. Jeff will sign autographs when the show is over.

Opportunities for more conversation with Jeff , Curt Hanson and those who were involved in filming in Astoria can be had by attending a special breakfast or dinner, both being planned by the organizers.
