Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The working name for the town The Goonies was set in was Cauldron Point, possibly based on the location of the same name.
The Goonies was filmed on location in Astoria in 1984; buildings and locations featured in the film still exist and are visited by fans from across the globe.
The city houses the Oregon Film Museum, with a section dedicated to The Goonies, housing props from the film and providing information on its production. June 7th to the 10th is Astoria's annual "Goonies Day" celebration, with multiple Goonies-themed activities across the city.

- Astoria was also used for filming for other movies, including Kindergarten Cop, Free Willy and Free Willy 2: The Adventure Home, Short Circuit, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III, Into The Wild, The Ring Two, Benji the Hunted, and The Black Stallion.
