Lucky for you, we’ve got a solution: “The Goonies.”
For those who don’t remember the 1985 movie (shame on you!), “The Goonies” celebrates childhood adventures and hunts for hidden treasure with a sweet, goofy sense of humor that appeals to both kids and nostalgic adults.
It’s a gem of a movie, full of gentle humor, touching moments and downright pathetic villains.
What’s more, the film singlehandedly launched the careers of several actors, including Sean Astin (“Rudy,” the “Lord of the Rings” triology), Josh Brolin (“American Gangster”), Martha Plimpton and Corey Feldman — who, together with Corey Haim, basically ruled the 1980s.
Too bad the same can’t be said for Jonathan Ke Quan, a.k.a Short Round in “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.”
“The Goonies” plays tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Fremont Theatre, 1025 Monterey St. in San Luis Obispo. Arrive early for trivia and prizes.
Tickets are $7 to $9.
The Fremont offers a screening of “The Sound of Music” on Tuesday, Nov. 13, also starting at 7:30 p.m.
