Geek Out Over The Goonies And National Lampoon’s Animal House At The Oregon Film Museum
Hey you guys! Oregon is a pop culture paradise. Numerous famous flicks were filmed here, including “Free Willy,” “National Lampoon’s Animal House,” “Kindergarten Cop,” and “Twilight.” But there’s no Oregon film more famous than “The Goonies,” the 1985 caper about a group of kids from Astoria’s Goon Docks neighborhood. It’s a cult classic, and you’d be hard-pressed to find an Oregonian who doesn’t totally love this movie. Happily, the Oregon Film Museum in Astoria is a place where film fans can totally geek out over the Beaver State’s most famous flicks, and even experience iconic moments in movie history.
