The Goonies: Yay, Nay, or Meh?


Goonies may never die, but the movie itself does grow older. The iconic Astoria-centered film turns 30 this year, and thousands of fans are expected to descend on the town to celebrate. We talk to Mac Burns, Executive Director of the Clatsop County Historical Society which operates the Oregon Film Museum, about what’s in store this weekend. We also talk to film reviewer Marc Mohan about why this particular movie still resonates for so many people.
