Or, add your own...plenty of eating places located very close to the theater, reasonably priced & a little higher end if that's what you are looking for. Public parking was a little difficult, so might as well park in the parking structure on Maryland as the first 90 mins. are free. Total cost of just the performance was $1!!!!

So awesome to see The Goonies on the big screen! And the theatre is beautiful. I wasn't aware that there would be a guest speaker (the prop-master from the film), but his 10-minute interview before the film added a lot to our enjoyment. And we...continued

I missed when this movie first came out and I have never seen it. Seeing it in a theatre was great, along with the Our Gang short, Bugs Bunny cartoon, and Q&A with Goonies Prop Master Erik Nelson. A fun time!

Alex Theatre is a beautiful and nostalgic theatre to see any production. It was a treat to see "The Goonies" on the big screen, especially since this was my first time seeing it.

Description

The Goonies is a grand adventure film, and a blueprint for how to make an all-ages film that holds up over time.

Mikey and Brandon Walsh are two brothers whose family is preparing to move due to a new development that is sure to be started unless enough money is raised, which is quite doubtful.

But, when Mikey stumbles on a treasure map of the famed “One-Eyed” Willy’s hidden fortune, he, his brother, and a few friends set out on a quest to find the riches in hopes to save their homes.

The entrance to a cavern is found, but it is located underneath an abandoned restaurant occupied by the Fratelli family, a treacherous group of thieves who attempt to beat the “Goonies” to the treasure.

The Goonies stars Josh Brolin, Sean Astin, and Joe Pantoliano. Written by Chris Columbus and directed by Richard Donner.

Event running time is approximately 2 hours.
