The Goonies

Science on Screen creatively pairs screenings of classic, cult, science fiction, and documentary films with lively presentations by notable experts from the world of science and technology. All Science on Screen films are presented free and open to the public.

Mikey and Brandon Walsh are brothers whose family is preparing to move because developers want to build a golf course in the place of their neighborhood -- unless enough money is raised to stop the construction of the golf course, and that's doubtful . . .  But when Mikey stumbles upon a treasure map of the famed "One-Eyed" Willy's hidden fortune, Mikey, Brandon, and their friends Lawrence "Chunk" Cohen, Clark "Mouth" Devereaux, Andrea "Andy" Carmichael, Stefanie "Stef" Steinbrenner, and Richard "Data" Wang, calling themselves The Goonies, set out on a quest to find the treasure in hopes of saving their neighborhood.

Featuring the presentation "Know Where You Stand: The Modern Map"
with Torry Bishop and Tom Hoober from onX

Torry Bishop has been with onX for about 4 years. He's been working in the Customer Experience department answering phone calls, customer emails and speaking face to face for those that come in to visit. He finds joy in helping customers better understand their onX product and help them create awesome memories and experiences while off pavement. When not working, he enjoys helping his wife Lisa wrangle their two sons Griffin and Sullivan.

Tom Hoober is a Senior GIS Analyst at onX. He has worked in the field of web mapping for 11 years and likes being part of an evolving and increasingly prominent field. Working at onX has paired his passion of outdoors discovery, his joy of data visualization and his commitment to helping others. He also spends his time volunteering for various local organizations and events, wandering the woods, running races, watching classic movies at the Roxy and, as of last December, being a father.  

An initiative of the COOLIDGE CORNER THEATRE, with major support from the ALFRED P. SLOAN FOUNDATION.
