Beyond the Backlot, a new show exploring filming locations, visited Astoria in 2017 to produce their pilot episode on Astoria and The Goonies. The host, Curtis, had a great time reliving the film and bringing back those childhood memories by visiting Astoria -- like many fans have done over the years. Curtis and the crew will be in Astoria for Goonies Day with an exclusive peak at their full-length episode and will host a QnA directly following the episode, before The Goonies takes the big screen.
The Columbian is a historic theater that offers traditional movie snacks along with pizza, beer, wine and more. All tickets are sold on-site and the box office and concessions are cash-only.
