In 1985, "The Goonies" hit the big screen and eventually became a cult classic. Now the Oregon town where it was filmed -- Astoria -- is gearing up to celebrate the movie's 25th anniversary.

From June 4-7, 2010, Goonies fans can descend upon Astoria to reminisce about secret caves, lost maps and treacherous traps during a series of special anniversary events. Stars from the movie will sign autographs and share stories about the film. Bus tours will take clients to movie locations, including the Goonies house -- where participants can go inside -- and the Clatsop County Jail.

"The Goonies" will be shown at local movie theaters, and there will be an outdoor concert at Warren Park, possibly featuring performers from the film. In addition, area breweies will serve commemorative Goonie craft beers.

Weekend passes and individual tickets will be available for the event.
