Late Night at the Latchis kicks off with 'The Goonies'


BRATTLEBORO >> On Friday, June 24, Southern Vermont Young Professionals and Latchis Arts are partnering to kick off Late Night at The Latchis.

Starting at 9:30 p.m., Southern Vermont Young Professionals will be meeting at Flat Street Pub in Brattleboro to mix and mingle before the show. At 11 p.m., there will be screening of "The Goonies" at the Latchis. Admission to the movie is by donation, and the public is welcome.

A cult hit written by Steven Spielberg and released in 1985, "The Goonies" stars Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Jeff Cohen and other young stars in a story of a group of misfits who set out to find a pirate's ancient treasure in order to save their home from foreclosure.

"The Goonies is a smooth mixture of the usual ingredients for Steven Spielberg action movies, made special because of the high-energy performances of the kids who have the adventures," wrote Roger Ebert. Empire said "a rollicking good time is had by all in this adventure."

"The Goonies" is rated PG.
