Free outdoor cinema at the DLWP

The De La Warr Pavilion hosts another free outdoor cinema screening this weekend.

This week’s movie is the 1980s blockbuster and family favourite The Goonies.

The movie will be shown on the sea-facing wall of the Pavilion at 8.30pm/sunset on Saturday evening (August 16). Last week more than 400 people enjoyed an open-air showing of Back to the Future. Saturday’s movie comes from

Steven Spielberg and Richard Donner, the makers of Indiana Jones, Gremlins and Superman. Mikey Walsh and Brandon Walsh are brothers whose family is preparing to move because developers want to build a golf course in the place of their neighbourhood - unless enough money is raised to stop the construction of the golf course, and that’s doubtful.

But when Mikey stumbles upon a treasure map of the famed “One-Eyed” Willy’s hidden fortune, Mikey, Brandon, and their friends Lawrence “Chunk” Cohen, Clark “Mouth” Devereaux, Andrea “Andy” Carmichael, Stefanie “Stef” Steinbrenner, and Richard “Data” Wang, calling themselves The Goonies, set out on a quest to find the treasure in hopes of saving their neighbourhood. The treasure is in a cavern, but the entrance to the cavern is under the house of evil thief Mama Fratelli and her sons Jake Fratelli, Francis Fratelli, and the severely disfigured Lotney “Sloth” Fratelli. Sloth befriends the Goonies and decides to help them.
