The inspiration for the name of the band... God is love and Rick came from the Tower of Power.

BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S (1961) - Based on the novel by Truman Capote and directed by Blake Edwards, this unforgettable gem of a romantic comedy stars the incomparable Audrey Hepburn at the height of her beauty and talent. Hepburn is mesmerizing as Holly Golightly, a Manhattan party girl who doesn't quite grasp when parties end and reality begins. Sharing Holly's lifestyle is handsome young writer Paul Varjack (George Peppard). No matter what scrape Holly manages to get into, Paul is always there to pick up the pieces. But Paul is trying to make something of himself and Holly is trying to create something of herself. Will Holly realize that there's more to life than being kept in a style to which she's become accustomed? Will Paul ever convince Holly that he deserves more from her than "brotherly" love? Micky Rooney as Holly's Japanese landlord, O.J. Berman as Holly's Hollywood agent, Patricia Neal as Paul's patron, and Buddy Epsen as Holly's ex-husband round out a perfect cast delivering peak performances. Henri Mancini's musical score and the song "Moon River" sung by Audrey Hepburn earned Oscars.

See The Goonies at Paramount Theatre July 11!

(0)

THE GOONIES (1985) - Precocious, misfit kids discover a pirate map and begin a heart-pounding adventure to find treasure. 

On the wrong side of the tracks in a seaside town, a land developer prepares to tear down a block of houses in order to build a golf course. A band of neighborhood kids, who call themselves the Goonies, are about to see an end to their adventures together. Facing eviction from their homes, the Goonies find an old Spanish map and go on the trail of a lost pirate treasure. This is Stephen Spielberg's homage to classic children's adventure films - but the Goonies are real kids: vulgar, insensitive, profane, cunning, and combative. Director Richard Donner hurls plot twists, thrills, laughs, stunts, and special effects across the screen at breakneck speed, and the cast of precocious child actors (Sean Astin, Martha Plimpton, Jeff Cohen, Corey Feldman, and Anne Ramsey) is unforgettable.

Movie classics feature 35mm film prints, a newsreel, cartoon, previews, Dec-O-Win raffle, and a live Wurlitzer organ serenade. Purchase advance tickets here and enter to win a pair of tickets by emailing rsvp@sfmediaco.com with "The Goonies" in the subject line. Tickets available at the Paramount Box Office on movie night.
