Doors 7:00 PM | Showtime 7:30 PM

Have you ever been in a cockpit before? Do you like movies about gladiators? Have you ever been in a Turkish prison? If your answer to any of these questions is "wait, what?" then you're in for a rare treat--the 1980 comedy classic Airplane! on the big screen. The spoof that launched a thousand imitators, not to mention a brilliant second career for Leslie Nielsen as a comic actor, lands at the Eureka Theater. David Zucker, Jim Abrahams, and Jerry Zucker pull out all the stops in this relentless laugh-fest that sends-up every airplane disaster film from ZERO HOUR to AIRPORT. “Serious” actors Robert Stack, Leslie Nielsen, Llloyd Bridges, and Peter Graves, along with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (!), round out the game cast, and watch for cameos by the likes of “The Beaver’s” mom, Barbara Billingsley, and Ethel Merman. Admission is $5.00 all ages. Doors open at 7:00 PM, showtime at 7:30 PM.

1980 | 88 min. | Rated PG

Fourth Friday Flix:


February 24, 2017

Doors 7:00 PM | Showtime 7:30 PM

We need the old Blade Runner. We need the director's cut magic. Ridley Scott's iconic 1982 adaptation of Philip K. Dick's novel about rogue androids set a new standard for sci-fi and brought back the grit, dread and style of noir.

In acid rain-soaked 2019 Los Angeles, a retired cop (a battered Harrison Ford) hunts down a squad of escaped replicants -- sentient androids -- who are trying to add some time to their battery lives. Rutger Hauer wrings sympathy for the devil from his role as the wild-eyed replicant leader, while Sean Young smolders in full femme-fatale mode. And the extra footage changes everything. Anybody who tells you otherwise is probably a replicant.

Admission is $5.00 all ages. Doors open at 7:00 PM, showtime at 7:30 PM.

1982 | 117 min. | Rated R

An annual tradition in Eureka, the Red Carpet Gala recognizes a noteworthy year of filmmaking in Humboldt and Del Norte Counties on the biggest night of the year for movies, the 89th Academy Awards. 

The Gala will include community awards for private and public entities, and for individuals that have excelled at being film-friendly in our region and accommodating productions in the area. Over the past year filmmakers have captured the region’s unique locations, embraced local talent, and energized the local economy with a steady stream of productions in every type of media. Everything from TV shows like Beachfront Bargain Hunt and American Pickers, to Disney’s recent feature production of A Wrinkle in Time utilized the Redwood Region’s mystical forests and mesmerizing coast. 

The Gala will feature an appetizer bar, prizes, champagne and cocktails from the no host bar, a best dressed contest, community awards, and musical entertainment by the RLA Jazz Trio and solo artist Michael Dayvid, all while watching ABC’s live public telecast of the 2017 Academy Awards on the big screen.

March 24, 2017

Doors 7:00 PM | Showtime 7:30 PM

If you Google "greatest concert movies of all time," this Talking Heads performance film consistently ranks in the top three, and is more often than not at the very top of that list. Directed by the great Jonathan Demme (Silence of the Lambs, Philadelphia, Swimming to Cambodia), Talking Heads are backed up by funk greats Bernie Worrell, Alex Weir, Steve Scales, Lynn Mabry, and Ednah Holt, bringing an infectious vitality to the performance. From the opening number Psycho Killer--just David Byrne on a bare stage with an acoustic guitar and a cassette player--to the frenetic, joyful Crosseyed and Painless that concludes the show, STOP MAKING SENSE builds in complexity and energy, until remaining in your seat simply becomes impossible. Don't think you're a Talking Heads fan? You will be.

1984 | 100 min. | Admission $5.00
