Goonies still never say die
Picture this: you are watching a great film. You have some great food and your favourite drink, be that a pint or a cocktail. You are on a rooftop. There are panoramic views of the city and the sun is setting. Everything is good; life is great. Sound like a dream? Well, thanks to Stratford's Roof East, it ain't no more. Tonight’s offering on the huge screen is The Goonies, which is celebrating its 30-year anniversary this year. A firm family fave, this movie follows an enterprising group of boys who tackle the threat to their neighbourhood the only way they know how: by finding pirate treasure. With the villainous fratellis hot on their heels, the gang risk life and limb (sort of) to beat them to the finish line. "Find me another kids' film featuring economic struggle, opera, disabled brothers and a piano made of bones and I'll do the truffle shuffle myself." – The Guardian "The Goonies has every imaginable funhouse flourish. It has crooks, bats, cobwebs, skeletons, a lovable monster, an underground grotto and a treasure hidden by some of the most considerate, clue-loving pirates who ever lived." – New York Times Over 18s only. Runtime: 1 hour 39 minutes. Doors are at 8pm, film starts at 9pm.
"A rolicking good time."
