Short Circuit

Richard Bates purchased the Astoria home that appeared in the 1986 movie "Short Circuit" and is currently renovating it into a 1980s museum and a pet-friendly bed and breakfast. The museum will feature Bates' large collection of rare 1980s action figures, relics from the movie and more.

"I think this place could help Astoria's economy," Bates said.
