The Goonies— Know where you stand: The modern map
Torry Bishop and Tom Hoober, part of the team behind the onX wilderness map app, discuss modern-day map reading and how to use today's technology to know where in the world you are. After the presentation, the audience puts map reading to work with a Roxy Treasure Hunt around the Hip Strip.
In order to save their home from foreclosure, a group of misfits sets out to find a pirate's ancient treasure.
Facing foreclosure in the Goon Docks area of Astoria, Oregon, two brothers (Josh Brolin, Sean Astin) are desperate to find a way to save their home. After discovering a treasure map in their attic, they and their band of misfit friends set out to find it. Along the way, they cross paths with lady criminal Mama Fratelli (Anne Ramsey) and her outlaw brood, who are also determined to get their hands on the loot. Fortunately, the kids manage to befriend Fratelli's horribly deformed (but soft-hearted) son (John Matuszak), who comes to their rescue. This cult adventure comedy was adapted from a story by Steven Spielberg, with a screenplay by Chris Columbus.
