One of the most treasured family films of the 80s, THE GOONIES teaches us that adventure lurks around every corner if we open our hearts to it. A group of misfits find a pirate's map and embark on a wild quest to save their home and their friends. With performances from young Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Martha Plimpton and Corey Feldman, THE GOONIES hasn't aged a day–and when you watch it, you'll feel like you haven't either.

BACK TO THE FUTURE
Over 30 years ago, Michael J. Fox & Christopher Lloyd took us on an era-hopping adventure with BACK TO THE FUTURE as the '80s raddest time travelin' teen and his unlikely sidekick – a crazy, wild-eyed, wild-haired scientist. What rose from those flame trails is the heaviest sci-fi comedy ever made – one that is often considered "the perfect movie" without hyperbole.

Who ya gonna call? GHOSTBUSTERS! Obviously! It's possible that GHOSTBUSTERS is the world's most universally adored movie. Spectre-destroyers Murray, Aykroyd, Ramis and the vastly under-appreciated Hudson collectively defined everything we enjoy in '80s cinema, unleashing a supernatural adventure that busts funnybones as well as ghosts. Together, the four hopped in a converted ambulance and made an entire decade safe for hilarity, action, and transdimensional demon combat.

E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL
There are those handful of precious, important films that have undeniably shaped countless childhoods. Steven Spielberg's childlike view of an alien encounter is one of them. E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL, one of the most ingenious, imaginative, heartfelt, unpretentious science-fiction films ever made, has touched the heart of generations of young moviegoers.
All Pix In The Plaza events are free, family-friendly, and open to the public. The plaza opens at 6:30pm for pre-screening activities. Blankets or folding chairs to sit on are encouraged. Movies begin shortly after dusk. Pets are welcome, but outside food and beverages are not allowed. Parking is available for free in the Toyota Music Factory garage.
