Second Saturday Kids' Matinee
Presented by the Redwood Discovery Museum
Sponsored by Redwood Family Practice
February 13, 2016 | Showtime 12:30 PM
The Eureka Theater is proud to partner with the Redwood Discovery Museum in presenting the second installment in our monthly Second Saturday Kids' Matinee Series - MULAN! Disney's Mulan is a charming film based loosely on a traditional Chinese tale. A young girl, Mulan, takes up arms to join the army in her father's place due to his ailing health. Mulan's ancestors send a Dragon Spirit to try to stop her from going to war, but he soon becomes her lovable sidekick as she prevails against all odds. This time, the princess saves the prince. The proceeds from the film go to benefit both non-profits and we are thankful to our film's sponsor Redwood Family Practice! Tickets are $5.00 all ages. Doors open at noon and the show starts at 12:30pm.

MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL
Sponsored by Humboldt Serfs
February 26, 2016 | Showtime 7:30 PM
And now! At last! One of the funniest (and most quotable) comedies of all time, Monty Python and the Holy Grail! Perhaps the Pythons’ finest film, this cult classic puts an absurdist spin on the King Arthur legend complete with silly swordplay, horseless horseplay, a killer bunny, and a band of knights who say “Ni.” Written and performed by John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin and the late Graham Chapman, “Holy Grail” also features a hilarious turn by Carol “The Seventh Python” Cleveland and several silly songs courtesy of former “Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band” member (and soon-to-be Rutle) Neil Innes. Plus, it’s the only film that dare asks the question “What’s the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?” Coconuts provided (while supplies last), shrubberies optional.

RED CARPET GALA 2016!

This is THE Oscar party you've been waiting for! Past and present come together to celebrate 100 years of filming in Humboldt/Del Norte County and to watch the Oscars in style, as the historic Eureka Theater partners with the Humboldt-Del Norte Film Commission to present their annual Red Carpet Gala! The event begins at 5:00 PM as guests arrive and walk the red carpet into the Streamline Moderne lobby of the Eureka Theater. Inside the lobby, guests can mingle and schmooze with fellow movie fans and social butterflies, sample scrumptious hors d'oeuvres, and quaff fabulous cocktails and champagne from the no-host bar. ABC's live telecast of the 88th Annual Academy Awards will begin at 5:30 PM, projected on the big screen in the Eureka Theater auditorium. Pesky commercials will be replaced with our own local awards, plus a few surprises. Our emcee for the evening will be actor/writer Kurtis Bedford (HBO's Getting On). Advance tickets are $25, available online at Brown Paper Tickets or locally at Annex 39 Antiques, next door to the Eureka Theater. Tickets at the door will be $30. So hire the sitter, get glammed up, and show your support for the Humboldt-Del Norte Film Commission and the restoration of the historic Eureka Theater!
