Cinema Under the Stars: The Goonies @ Reynolda House Museum of American Art (W-S), 7:30 p.m.
Reasons why you should go see the Goonies as told by Chuck, an original Goonie:
“… the worst thing I ever done – I mixed a pot of fake puke at home and then I went to this movie theater, hid the puke in my jacket, climbed up to the balcony and then, t-t-then, I made a noise like this: hua-hua-hua-huaaaaaaa – and then I dumped it over the side, all over the people in the audience. And then, this was horrible, all the people started getting sick and throwing up all over each other. I never felt so bad in my entire life.”
More info can be found on the Reynolda House event Facebook page.
Food for Fines @ the High Point Public Library (HP), 9 a.m.
You can finally stop hiding those overdue library books in the trunk of your car or using them to hold up your coffee table.
