Astoria Oregon as a movie film venue

Here's a interesting website that shows you what locations were used to shoot movies.  According to the Internet Movie Database, there are 21 films since 1937 that have been filmed on location in whole or in part in Astoria Oregon.  Some of the highlights:
  • The Goonies was filmed in Astoria Oregon and Cannon Beach OregonRoaring Timber (1937)
  • Free Willy and Free Willy 2 (1993 and 1995)
  • Kindergarten Cop (1990)
  • The Goonies (1985)
  • Short Circuit (1986)

So how about a quick Oregon coast vacation to Astoria, stay at an Astoria Oregon Bed and Breakfast, and bring along your favorite movies filmed in Astoria--make a game out of figuring out where in Astoria the movie was filmed?

Harold Phillips, a Portland Oregon actor, notes in his blog that 200 people per month visit sites in Astoria Oregon where The Goonies was filmed.  For a 25 year old movie, that's impressive!

Our Oregon Bed & Breakfast Guild innkeepers are strong on trivia for their local areas.  We'll bet you dimes to doughnuts that your host can share a few tips about the filming locations.  Who knows?  Maybe their Astoria Oregon bed and breakfast was included in the film?

Try some Oregon Coast lodging in an Astoria Oregon bed and breakfast to find out.  We're certain you won't be disappointed.
