A band of children seek a long-lost fortune in The Goonies.
Despite the cancellation of the Kowhai Festival's Huge Day Out, the festival committee has managed to save the annual movie night.
It will be held on Halloween (Saturday, October 31) at the Shoesmith Domain.
Because of the scarcity of movies released this year, organisers have chosen a classic, The Goonies (1985), for the film.
Warkworth-based Travelling Cinema Company will take charge, projecting the film on to its 200-square metre screen – thought to be the largest outdoor screen in the country.
The movie starts at 8pm while music and a coffee stall will be in place from 7pm.
Families are welcome to bring their own picnic and are advised to bring a blanket, some chairs and warm clothing.
For the fifth time, the movie night is sponsored by Barfoot & Thompson in Warkworth and Mangawhai.
The Goonies is an adventure/comedy directed by Richard Donner and written by Chris Columbus and Steven Spielberg.
In the film, a band of children attempt to save their homes from foreclosure. They discover an old treasure map that takes them on an adventure to unearth the long-lost fortune of One-Eyed Willy, a legendary 17th-century pirate.
