The Goonies - 35th Anniversary
Friday & Sunday ONLY,  July 17 & 19
Starring Sean Astin, Josh Brolin & Jeff Cohen

Join The Strand as we present the blockbuster family action film back on the Big Screen in 45 speaker surround-sound for its 35th anniversary!

A group of young misfits called The Goonies discover an ancient map and set out on an adventure to find a legendary pirate's long-lost treasure.

According to Screenwirter, Chris Colombus, he came up with the idea for The Goonies because he grew up in a factory town in Ohio, where there was nothing to do. When he was a kid, during the summertime, he would go into the abandoned coal mines. Originally, Colombus was going to set the movie in Ohio.

The film stars three Oscar nominees; Sean Astin, Josh Brolin and Anne Ramsay.

According to
 Sean Astin, he was allowed to keep the treasure map used in the film. Several years later his mother Patty Duke discovered it, thought it was just a crinkled piece of paper, and threw it in the trash.

"ARRrrgh" Trivia: The pirate ship was entirely real. All the shots were filmed in the ship. After the film, it was offered to anyone who would take it. No one wanted it, so the ship was scrapped.

The script gives One-Eye Willie's full name as William B. Pordobell. This resembles Portobelo, a Panamanian port which has long been home to pirates.

Generally speaking, pirates were interested in crimes of opportunity, meaning they stayed to the typical shipping lanes--the Eastern coast on down into the Caribbean. It is not completely unheard of to have a pirate make their way all the way around to the Pacific Northwest, but it would have been quite rare, difficult to accomplish (no Panama Canal in the 17th century), and honestly a bit strange. This suggests that One-Eyed Willy was adamant about escaping some seriously-motivated pursuers, and not a run-of-the-mill pirate.
