Aside from being a critical and commercial success – this little slice of nostalgia will always hold a special place in the hearts of most 80’s and 90’s kids. It’s no surprise that the Bridgewater Hall’s celebratory event therefore, is exactly what we all need to feel young again.

On Friday 26th April there will be a showing of The Goonies accompanied by an impressive live orchestra to help bring the film to life.

Produced by 80’s icon Cyndi Lauper at the request of Steven Spielberg, it’s a score honoured for not just for its famous contributors such as The Bangles and Cyndi Lauper herself, but its ability to evoke emotions of nostalgia and anticipation.

Even if you haven’t paid particular attention to the score in the past, this unique, once in a lifetime event will make you appreciate this iconic piece of cinema on a whole new level and is something you don’t want to miss if it’s one of your favourites.

Times may have changed and cinema may have hurtled into the future, but if one thing is for sure, it’s that ‘Goonies never say die’.

Tickets range between £25.50 to £42.50 depending on the seats you select and are available for all ages so long as children under the age of 12 are accompanied by an adult.

This event is for one night only and tickets are expected to sell out fast, so book your tickets now before that (pirate) ship has sailed!
