No movie better encapsulates the thrill of adventure, bravery, and camaraderie quite like the 1985 cult-classic, The Goonies.
Set in Astoria, Oregon, the story revolves around a group of kids called the Goonies who go in search of a pirate’s fortune in the hopes of saving their neighbourhood from demolition.

Starring Sean Astin (who would see further fame in Rudy and The Lord of the Rings trilogy), The Goonies became a cult classic thanks to its quotable lines, memorable moments, and occasionally over-the-top story beats.
Now, over 30 years after finding treasure and saving their hometown of Astoria (sorry about the spoiler, but, come on, it’s been out for a while now), three of the most memorable Goonies are reuniting at this year’s Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo.
The long-lost fortune of One-Eyed Willy was just a legend until this band of adventurers got their hands on it. From The Goonies, we’re bringing back together Sean Astin, Corey Feldman & Ke Huy Quan at the #CalgaryExpo2019! Get your tickets: https://t.co/gkKxlo6zyl pic.twitter.com/4737PTvig5
