Step back in time as the Angelika Film Center presents its Flashback Family Film Series at 11 a.m. on the first Saturday of every month.
THE GOONIES, NOVEMBER 7
Adapted by Chris Columbus from a story by Steven Spielberg, The Goonies follows a group of misfit kids (including such second-generation Hollywoodites as Josh Brolin and Sean Astin) as they search for buried treasure in a subterranean cavern. Here they cross the path of lady criminal Mama Fratelli and her outlaw brood. Fortunately, the kids manage to befriend Fratelli’s hideously deformed but soft-hearted son, who comes to their rescue. The Spielberg influence is most pronounced in the film’s prologue and epilogue, when the viewer is advised that the film’s real villains are a group of “Evil Land Developers.”
