SUPER ’80S: A FILM DECADE OF GOONIES, MONSTERS AND GROWING UP
Double Feature!
THE GOONIES / STAND BY ME

In these two beloved coming of age stories, groups of childhood friends adventure alone beyond the experience of their years on fantastical quests and unsettling emotional journeys, from which they emerge a little wiser.

THE GOONIES
1985, Warner Bros., 114 min, USA, Dir: Richard Donner

Sean Astin, Ke Huy Quan, Martha Plimpton and Corey Feldman embark on a daring adventure that somehow weaves dirt bikes, bank robbers, pirate maps, James Bond-esque gadgetry, Joe Pantoliano and a super-powered mutant named Sloth into a fantastically fast-paced movie! The screenplay by Chris Columbus (GREMLINS), based on Steven Spielberg’s story, does not talk down to kids.


STAND BY ME
1986, Sony Repertory, 89 min, Dir: Rob Reiner

One of the most classic and quotable coming-of-age films ever made, Rob Reiner's adaptation of Stephen King's "The Body" is at once hilarious and heartbreaking, and a spot-on time capsule of small-town America in the 1950s. Will Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman and Jerry O'Connell star as four friends on the precipice of junior high school, enjoying a summer of small-fry hijinx. When they go looking for the body of a boy presumed dead from a train accident, they must come to terms with the difficult changes the future holds.
