'Goonies' cast members reunite at EW's CapeTown Film Festival

A comic adventure story about a group of children on a wild hunt for buried pirate treasure touched an entire generation of young moviegoers in the 1980s, and many of the most hardcore fans of Richard Donner’s The Goonies were in attendance Sunday for a panel and screening of the film at EW’s first-ever CapeTown Film Festival.

Present at the sell-out event’s panel were two Goonies — Corey Feldman and Jeff Cohen, who played Chunk — and Robert Davi, who played the singing Fratelli brother, Jake. Below are some of the highlights. READ FULL STORY

'Goonies' cast to reunite for Richard Donner at EW's CapeTown Fest

EW’s CapeTown Film Fest has been in full swing this week and today marks a busy day with screenings of Coraline, The Goonies, and Twelve Monkeys all set.

Unfortunately, Goonies director Richard Donner will no longer be able to participate in a post-screening Q&A due to a last-minute conflict.

But several cast members WILL be present to talk about the 1985 cult classic. Stars Corey Feldman (Mouth), Jeff Cohen (Chunk), and Robert Davi (Jake Fratelli) will all be at the Egyptian Theater after today’s 4 p.m. screening for our panel discussion.

Leonard Nimoy, Terry Gilliam, Neil Gaiman, 'Goonies' added to EW CapeTown Festival

Leonard Nimoy, Terry Gilliam, Richard Donner, John Carpenter, Neil Gaiman and Edgar Wright are among the starry names that will bring universes of imagination together at the EW CapeTown Film Festival (April 30 – May 6) in Los Angeles, the editors of Entertainment Weekly announced Friday.

Those guests, along with the previously announced appearance by Kurt Russell and the anniversary screenings of Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, represent a powerful line-up for the inaugural CapeTown festival, which shares its name with EW.com’s recently launched hub for sci-fi and fantasy coverage.

CapeTown has covered the news in pop culture’s most vivid sectors since January, but now it is making news with the appearance of Nimoy, the television and film icon who returns from retirement for one night and one night only on May 6, the finale night of the festival. Nimoy will be interviewed on stage by Geoff Boucher, the EW senior writer who programmed the festival, and the Q&A will have a tie-on screening of Star Trek, the 2009 J.J. Abrams hit that represents Nimoy’s farewell to the cinematic universe of Starfleet.

The festival, a co-presentation with the American Cinematheque, will be staged at the historic Egyptian Theater, the grand old movie palace that introduced a Tinseltown tradition in 1922 when it rolled out the carpet for Robin Hood and Douglas Fairbanks for the first Hollywood world premiere. All ticket and concession proceeds from the EW CapeTown Film Festival go to the non-profit Cinematheque.

The seven-day program of screenings and on-stage Q&As is sponsored by TNT’s Falling Skies, which will be given a special big-screen showcase on May 3 when the season 3 premiere is included as a bonus treat to fans attending the screening of Escape from New York. The full schedule is available here.
