Merriweather Movie Nights: The Goonies

DCACC brings you a night under the stars at one of the East Coast's best outdoor venues, Merriweather Post Pavilion. Grab a seat under the pavilion or bring blankets, pillows, and chairs for the lawn, and get ready to watch some of your favorite films!

Sadly, to make way for a new golf course, the entire community of the peaceful coastal town of Goon Docks in Oregon faces imminent foreclosure. However, when a band of local childhood friends, who call themselves the "Goonies", stumble upon an old treasure map riddled with hints and clues leading to the fabled loot the notorious pirate, "One-Eyed" Willy, the opportunity to save their homes emerges. Now, as the criminal Fratelli family is hot on their trail, a frenzied race against time begins; one that leads the Goonies to an underground maze of ingeniously dangerous booby traps, all designed by Willy himself to protect his fortune. Can the dauntless Goonies prove their mettle? Above all, is the treasure real?
