The Goonies was scheduled to be shown tonight (Wednesday, July 10) as part of the The Beach BIA's outdoor summer movie series in Kew Gardens park. Tonight's screening has been cancelled due to heavy rains, The Beach BIA announced earlier today.

Tonight’s (Wednesday, July 10) Beach BIA’s outdoor summer movie screening in Kew Gardens park has been cancelled due to heavy rains.

“Unfortunately due to the expected rain, we will be cancelling The Goonie movie tonight,” said The Beach BIA on its Facebook page today. “Rain date will be Saturday, Sept. 7. Stay tuned for more information on next week’s event. We have a lot of fun planned. Stay dry!”


During the summer, movies are scheduled to be shown on Wednesday nights at the park, 2075 Queen St. E., just west of Lee Avenue if the weather permits.

The family-themed movies will begin at sunset and end by 11 p.m.

Taking into consideration tonight’s cancellation, the movie schedule for the outdoor films at Kew Gardens this summer is as follows:

Those attending the movie nights at the park should bring their own lawnchairs or blankets for sitting on.

There will also be music, lawn games and snacks available at the outdoor movie nights in Kew Gardens.

Residents are also encouraged to visit one of the great restaurants along Queen Street East in the Beach for a meal before coming over the park to watch the movie.
