Goonies Never Say Die, Celebrate 25 Years of Pirate Fun

The Goonies R Good Enuff! Relive the wild adventure when The Goonies (1985) returns to Palmyra Pirate Weekend with a free outdoor screening at dusk on Friday, August 6, presented by L.L.Bean, a trusted source for quality apparel, reliable outdoor equipment and expert advice for more than 95 years.

Celebrating its 25th Anniversary, The Goonies has achieved cult-like status among legions of fans worldwide. This rollicking modern pirate tale serves as the official kick-off to Palmyra Pirate Weekend, and draws scores of movie goers and pirate fans to the Palmyra Village Park outdoors under the stars each year.

The Goonies follows the adventures Mikey and Brandon Walsh, brothers whose family is preparing to move away from their beloved town because developers want to build a golf course in the place of their neighborhood. When Mikey stumbles upon a treasure map of the famed "One-Eyed" Willy's hidden fortune, the Walsh brothers, and their friends Chunk, Mouth, Data, Andy and Stef, known collectively as the Goonies, set out on a quest to find the treasure in hopes of saving their neighborhood. But they’ll have to escape the clutches of the evil Fratelli crime family and beat them to the treasure.

This year, the free screening of The Goonies is made possible through the generous sponsorship of Eastview Mall’s newest retailer, legendary Maine outfitter L.L.Bean. The program begins at 7pm with music by The Harper and the Minstrel, appearing this summer at the Sterling Renaissance Festival. Complete weekend event schedules and maps will also be available to help you plan your visit to Palmyra Pirate Weekend 2010.

About Palmyra Pirate Weekend. Palmyra Pirate Weekend is a family-friendly, experiential festival intended to showcase Palmyra, New York, the Queen of Canal Towns. The visit of the Lois McClure to the Port of Palmyra Marina in August, 2007 was the first wind in the sails for Palmyra Pirate Weekend, yet this grassroots event has grown by the hard work of some creative and talented people who have long recognized Palmyra as the perfect place to live, work, and play. And we’re pretty sure we’re the only Pirate Festival on the Erie Canal!
