AARP is proud to co-present Lawn, an immersive installation at the National Building Museum. You are invited to experience this lush indoor landscape at a special, free Movies for Grownups screening of The Goonies.


The Goonies plunges a band of small heroes into a swashbuckling surprise-around-every corner quest beyond their wildest dreams! Following a mysterious treasure map into a spectacular underground realm of twisting passages, outrageous booby-traps and a long-lost pirate ship full of golden doubloons, the kids race to stay one step ahead of a family of bumbling bad guys...and a mild mannered monster with a face only a mother could love. (Rated PG for adult situations/language and violence. Audio assistance is unavailable for this screening.)

Please note:

  • Doors open at 7:00 PM and the movie starts at 8:00 PM. Guests are invited to explore all of the museum exhibits prior to the movie at no charge!
  • Outside food and drink are not permitted. There will be snacks available for purchase.
  • Guests may bring their own folding chairs. The installation also includes a limited number of seats and the museum will provide blankets for those who wish to stretch out.

Tickets are FREE but registration is REQUIRED. Click "Get Tickets" to register to see The Goonies on the Lawn!
