The Eureka Theater presents
July 3, 2015
Doors 7:00 PM | Showtime 7:30 PM
In conjunction with the HumCats Cat Art Show 2015, the Eureka Theater is proud to present the ridiculously charming RHUBARB, the Citizen Kane of cat-owned-baseball-team pictures. That is correct--the cat owns a baseball team. Starring the greatest feline actor of all time, Orangey (better known for his work in Breakfast at Tiffany's), along with Ray Milland, Jan Sterling, and the late, great Leonard Nimoy in a blink-and-you'll-miss-him part.

Eureka Main Street presents
A CAT IN PARIS
July 4, 2015
Doors 1:30 PM | Showtime 2:00 PM
The Eureka Theater's proud partnership with the Humcats Cat Art Show 2015 continues with A CAT IN PARIS, the thrilling animated adventure film that was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. In Paris, a cat who lives a secret life as a cat burglar's aide must come to the rescue of Zoe, the little girl he lives with, after she falls into a gangster's clutches. The New York Times described it as "a gorgeous hand-drawn feature that is one of the highlights of [the New York International Children's Film] festival. A caper featuring a cat, a cat burglar and a girl whose mother is a revenge-obsessed cop, it’s like an animated children’s version of an Alfred Hitchcock or Roman Polanski thriller set on the rooftops of Paris." Recommended for ages 6 and up. Best of all, thanks to the sponsorship of Eureka Main Street, this screening is FREE.

The Humboldt - Del Norte Film Commission presents
MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO
July 25, 2015
The Eureka Theater is very pleased to partner wit the Humboldt-Del Norte Film Commission in presenting the enchanting animated classic from the incomparable filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki. Set in rural Japan in 1958, we follow the adventures of Satsuki and her four-year-old sister Mei after they move into a new home in the countryside. To their delight, they discover that their new neighbor is a mysterious forest spirit called Totoro -- who can be seen only through the eyes of a child. My Neighbor Totoro was named the greatest animated film of all time by no less than Terry Gilliam, and film critic Roger Ebert wrote, "Whenever I watch it, I smile, and smile, and smile." You will, too.
