Doors 7:00 PM | Showtime 7:30 PM

Don't let the outer space setting fool you--Ridley Scott's 1979 masterpiece is straight-up haunted-house horror. Small band of humans trapped in a confined space with a monster that relentlessly picks them off one by one. But while the film's structure is familiar, the script introduced elements rarely seen before--a badass female protagonist (Ellen Ripley, as portrayed by the smashing Sigourney Weaver); an extraterrestrial organism that looked absolutely...well, alien; and an outer space that was cold, unforgiving, and deadly. For a generation that grew up with the clean, well-lit adventureland of Star Trek and Star Wars, ALIEN definitely put a gulp in the throat. Come see it on the big screen, and remember: in space, no one can hear you scream. But they can in the theater. Do what you gotta do.

1979 | 117 min. | Rated: R | Admission $5.00

Doors 7:00 PM | Showtime 7:30 PM

Think 1950s science fiction is all hokey special effects and bad acting? Sit down, child, and get an education. The original film version of INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS boasts artful direction by Don Siegel, solid performances from its cast, a script that is at turns both witty and chilling, and an atmosphere that is as much film noir as science fiction. It is pointless to resist--give in to the inevitability and see this classic as it was meant to be seen: in the dark, surrounded by strangers.

1956 | 80 min. | Not Rated | Admission $5.00

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 are $35, for sale online here and in person at The Local Beer Bar in Eureka, Humboldt Cider Company in Eureka, Mad River Brewing Company in Blue Lake, Redwood Curtain Brewing in Arcata, Six Rivers Brewery in McKinleyville, Eel River Brewing Company in Fortuna, and at Annex 39 Antiques in Eureka. This is a 21+ event, so bring your I.D. and your appetite for Humboldt County's strangest brews yet!
