Redwood Electronics presents
Fourth Friday Flix:
Hosted by The Great Razooly!
October 24, 2014
Doors 7:00 PM | Movie 7:30 PM

Witness the triumphant return of Horror Theatre and its diabolic host The Great Razooly, who will ascend the stage and host our October entry of Fourth Friday Flix--EQUINOX. SEE four teenagers fight a devil cult! SEE the ring that enslaves and destroys! SEE the symbol that defies the hosts of Hell! SEE the unleashed power of the 1000 year old book! SEE the ultra-low budget horror film made by a group of young movie enthusiasts, including Dennis Muren (Star Wars, Terminator 2, Jurassic Park), who would go on to win 9 visual effects Oscars in his career (so far). Part fever dream, part grindhouse schlock, part Evil Dead ancestor, and part love letter to Ray Harryhausen, EQUINOX is a strangely charming labor of love. A labor of love featuring demonic park rangers, creepy old guys in caves, and stop-motion monsters spawned from Hell itself. Enjoy.

1970 | 80 min. | Admission $5.00


ArMack Orchestra presents
October 25, 2014 - 7:00 PM
October 26, 2014 - 2:00 PM

The award-winning Arcata-McKinleyville High School Orchestra (ArMack) will present its annual silent film performance at the Eureka Theater, this year featuring Buster Keaton in the boisterous satire Our Hospitality. The 70-member student orchestra performs the musical score and zany sound effects live under the direction of conductor Carol Jacobson.

A family favorite enjoyed by all ages, this event is a fundraiser for ArMack's biennial musical/cultural trip, this year to Amsterdam, Netherlands, in the spring. The students will play in an international film festival and receive instruction from world-class musicians, as well as take in such sites as the Vincent van Gogh Museum and Anne Frank House.

Screenings of "Our Hospitality" will take place at 7:00 PM on Saturday, Oct. 25 and at 2:00 PM on Sunday, Oct. 26. Tickets are $7.00, available from student musicians, at the door or by calling 633-5551. Concessions will be available at both showings. For more information, email ed1@suddenlink.net or call 633-5551.

StrangeBrew Beerfest VII !
November 8, 2014 | 5:30 PM- 10:00 PM

The most anticipated fundraising event for the Eureka Theater is back! Again, we challenge local brewers to create the strangest and most delicious concoctions for the folks of Humboldt County and beyond. This is an event to showcase their talents, and to prove that Northern California is the best when it comes to beer. Previous showings have included everything from whiskey barrel aged beer, to vegetable/fruit/herb/plant ales, to multi-yeast and bacteria fermented libations. Even beer slushies, bloody marys, shortcake and jello shots have made an appearance. 

The Uptown Kings will provide the tunes. There will be delicious (reasonably priced) BBQ available to soak up the suds, and a few other surprises in store. Tickets for sale online here and in person at The Local Beer Bar in Eureka, Mad River Brewing Company in Blue Lake, Redwood Curtain Brewing in Arcata and Eel River Brewing Company in Fortuna. This is a 21+ event, so bring your I.D. and your appetite for Humboldt County's strangest brews yet!
