Fourth (okay, technically Third) Friday Flix:
WHITE CHRISTMAS (1954)
December 19, 2014
Doors 6:30 PM | Movie showtime 7:00 PM
Film reviewer Michael Vaughan said it best: "When they held a sprig of mistletoe over [the 1942 movie] HOLIDAY INN and gave it a big, warm, Technicolor kiss -- they ended up with WHITE CHRISTMAS." Toss together Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary (Aunt of George) Clooney, and Vera-Ellen; add in songs by Irving Berlin, costumes by Edith Head, and some great supporting actors like Mary Wickes and Dean Jagger; and present it all in Technicolor VistaVision, and you've got a Christmas classic for the ages. Admission is $5 for all ages, tickets sold at the door. All proceeds benefit the continuing restoration of the Eureka Theater.
Blu-ray, Color, 120 min.

Fourth Friday Flix:
Elvis in VIVA LAS VEGAS (1964)
January 23, 2015
Doors 7:00 PM | Movie showtime 7:30 PM
If Elvis had not passed away in 1977, he would be…well, he’d probably be dead by now. But that’s not stopping us from celebrating his birth month in a manner that befits The King. Join us for—if such things can be measured—the Best. Elvis. Movie. Ever. And it's pretty hard to argue with that sentiment--besides The King himself, the movie features the scene-stealing sizzle of a young Ann-Margret, Las Vegas at its hippest, a title song that's been covered by everyone from Bruce Springsteen to the Dead Kennedys to Shawn Colvin, and (for once) a quality director in George Sidney (KISS ME KATE, PAL JOEY, BYE BYE BIRDIE). Elvis plays a race-car driver named---oh, who cares? Nobody sees this flick for the plot. Elvis. Ann-Margret. Singing and dancing. Vegas, baby, Vegas. Admission is $5 for all ages, tickets sold at the door. All proceeds benefit the continuing restoration of the Eureka Theater.

ATTACK OF THE CRAB MONSTERS (1957)
February 7, 2015
Doors 6:00 PM | Movie showtimes 6:30 & 7:45 PM
There is no better way to wind up a full day of Crab Crawl Festival activities than with Roger Corman's classic (?) tale of people trapped on a shrinking island by intelligent, brain-eating giant crabs. This low-budget ($70,000) flick serves as a reminder while you're cracking open those yummy crab legs that they'd do the same thing to you if they could. As part of the Eureka Arts Alive tradition, admission to both screenings is free and open to the public. Donations are welcome, however, and all proceeds benefit the continuing restoration of the Eureka Theater.
DVD, B&W, 62 min.
HOUSE OF FLOYD: THE MUSIC OF PINK FLOYD
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY
Saturday, February 14, 2015 | 8:00 PM
HOUSE OF FLOYD celebrates their 10th year of rockin' shows in 2015 with a special February 14th Valentine's evening performance at the Eureka Theater! The S.F. Bay Area’s HOUSE OF FLOYD performs the music of Pink Floyd, and has gained a strong following for their unique ability to enthuse both the hard-core fans of the early adventurous Floyd and those who enjoy the songs and soundscapes that later brought them widespread appeal. They capture the essence of each of the various Pink Floyd eras from the formative Syd Barrett days, through the 70’s and the final post-Waters era. In the Pink Floyd tradition, a HOUSE OF FLOYD concert incorporates sound effects, screen projection, moving lights & state of the art laser show. You may even see a giant inflatable pig! Tickets are $25, and are available online at Brown Paper Tickets, or in person at Annex 39 Antiques, The Works in Eureka, and Wildberries Marketplace in Arcata. There will be a drawing halfway through the show for HOF merchandise and gear--lasers, lighting gear and mini amps along with T-shirts & mugs will be raffled off, so hang on to those ticket stubs!

Fourth Friday Flix:
BLAZING SADDLES (1974)
February 27, 2015
Doors 7:00 PM | Movie showtime 7:30 PM
Hedley Lamarr. Horse punching. The beans. Oh, lord, the beans. Mel Brooks took issue with the American Film Institute naming SOME LIKE IT HOT as the funniest movie of all time, insisting that, laugh for laugh, there's never been a funnier movie than BLAZING SADDLES. Good people can disagree on this, but you gotta admit it deserves respect. Hilariously funny and blisteringly politically incorrect, there's enough highbrow and lowbrow humor to offend just about everyone. Admission is $5, tickets sold at the door. We request you not pay with a ****-load of dimes. All proceeds benefit the continuing restoration of the Eureka Theater.
Blu-ray, Color, 93 min. | Rated: R
