Hey, you guuuuuuys!

What I’m about to tell you may make you feel terribly, terribly old. Much-loved family film The Goonies is nearly 35 years old.

The 80’s classic is a fond part of most people’s childhood, whether you watched it as an actual child or as a fully grown man/woman-child. And on April 26 audiences will be able to relive one of the most evocative pieces of cinema, and music created for cinema, in a totally unique way.

The Goonies will be screened at Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall with a full orchestra performing the iconic soundtrack live to screen. Fans will be able to fully immerse themselves in the film, which follows a band of adventurous kids who take on the might of a property developing company which plans to destroy their home to build a country club.

When the children discover an old pirate map in the attic, they follow it into an underground cavern in search of lost treasure but come up against plenty of dangerous obstacles along the way!


Join Mikey, Brand, Chunk, Mouth, Andy, Stef, Data and the true hero of the story, Sloth, for a truffle shuffle down memory lane that’s sure to bring a smile to your face.
