Regrettably we’ve had to take the decision to cancel this event due to the weather. Despite strong winds being forecast, we were hopeful we could go ahead, as the event location is quite sheltered. However, having visited the site, the wind levels are still too high for us to inflate our big screen and deliver a safe event, and we must consider the safety of customers and crew above all else. All bookers have been contacted by e-mail and will be refunded.
Get ready for pirates, scary bad guys, brave kids, thrills, spills and booby traps in Richard Donner/Steven Spielberg’s classic 80s adventure comedy The Goonies, in the open air at the stunning Blue Pool in Wareham, Dorset. Dust off your treasure map and prepare for a funny, scary, thrill ride into the unknown. There’s even a ‘Truffle Shuffle’ thrown in for good measure. HEY YOU GUYS!
The screening will take place on a grassed area at the venue. For safety reasons, there will be no access to the Blue Pool itself on the night of the event, but you are welcome to make a day of your trip and visit the whole attraction in the daytime (admission charges apply).

COVID Measures: as restrictions have now been lifted in England, we won’t be asking you to wear facemasks to the event, or to socially distance from each other. However, if you feel more comfortable wearing a mask, this is fine with us, and we’ll also make sure there’s enough room at the event for you to sit a reasonable distance from neighbouring groups. All premium deckchair seats will still be distanced by group.
Food and Drink: you are welcome to bring picnics to the event. However, due to licensing restrictions, you are not permitted to bring alcohol with you. An event bar will be open selling alcoholic and soft drinks. Hot drinks and ice creams will also be on sale. Please don’t bring any glass containers or bottles to the event.
Other Information: Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. The film is rated 12A. Deckchairs with blankets will be provided for those purchasing premium seats, all other customers selecting standard seating must bring their own low-backed camping chairs or deckchairs.
Weather policy: screenings go ahead in all but worst weathers. Only if there’s heavy, prolonged rain or high winds forecast will the screening be postponed or cancelled. No refunds will be given unless the screening is cancelled.

The Blue Pool WarehamThe Blue Pool, Furzebrook Rd, Wareham, BH20 5ARThe Blue Pool forms part of the Furzebrook Estate which traces its history back nearly 400 years. Formally a clay-pit, dug by hand and abandoned in the early 19th Century to be naturally filled with rainwater and the colour phenomenon of its waters (caused by light diffracting from minuscule particles of clay suspended in its still depths) began to attract attention. Today the location is a fantastic visitor attraction and site of special interest, including walking trails, childrens' adventure areas and tea room.
