An Oregon town that hosted filming for the 1985 movie "The Goonies" is gearing up for a 30th-anniversary weekend that's sure to make fanatics do the Truffle Shuffle or shout, "It's our time!" (Or both. Why choose?)
A fan website called The Goondocks has outlined all the activities planned for June 4-7 — mostly in Astoria, Oregon, with others set for the coastal community of Cannon Beach, some 25 miles southeast.
"During the four-day event, Goonies can tour iconic film locations, bowl at 'Chunk’s Bowling Alley,' attend costumed quote-a-long film screenings, sip Truffle Shuffle Stout from local Fort George Brewery, and adventure on a scavenger hunt," reads a portion of the site's home page.
Long after the eminently quotable flick first arrived in theaters in June 1985, the 90-minute blockbuster about an adventurous group of treasure-hunting kids has had staying power among the young and the young-at-heart. It also helped launch or bolster the careers of Josh Brolin, Sean Astin, Martha Plimpton, Corey Feldman and Joe Pantoliano, some of whom were relative unknowns at the time of the film's release.
Among the other activities planned for the 30th anniversary weekend in Oregon are a sold-out "Sail with Sloth" excursion aboard the Lady Washington, autograph signings, a "Truffle Shuffle 5K Fun Run," and a tour of "Mikey's house." Individual events range from free to $35 a pop.
In addition to inspiring previous "Goonies" celebrations in the Oregon town, the film's popularity has spawned similar gatherings in other cities. In 2010, for example, Feldman and Pantoliano joined fellow "Goonies" stars Robert Davi, Lupe Ontiveros and Ke Huy Quan in reuniting with director Richard Donner and casting director Mike Fenton at a 25th-anniversary event in Burbank, California.
But it might not be time to give up hope just yet. After all, "Goonies never say die."
