A Celebration of America’s Game.” Schedule & More Info!
August 7th – Film on the Rocks: The Goonies
“One of the greatest adventure stories of all time, The Goonies returns to Film on the Rocks for a special evening of childhood wonderment and 80s Spielbergian nostalgia. In a sense, The Goonies is a forebearer to Speilberg’s latest pop-culture bonanza, Ready Player One.” Get Tickets!
