Friday, June 21
Shoulderpads, murder, and pie—what the hell more do you want? Throw in razor-sharp dialogue and the sunny despair of Los Angeles noir.
Joan Crawford tears up the screen as Mildred Pierce, a woman drawn into a police investigation after the murder of her second husband, her name being the last word to leave his lips. Matters become more complicated when she lures an old friend to the murder scene to frame him for the crime. The reasons for her duplicity are recanted through flashbacks, showing her ascension from humble waitress to successful business owner, devotion to her children and their well-being, and her complicated relationships with men.
(1945 / b&w / 111 min.)

Humboldt premiere of ‘Breaking Habits’ with Q&A
The Eureka Theater is proud to present the Humboldt premiere of the new documentary Breaking Habits, which tells the story of Sister Kate, founder of the Sisters of the Valley (AKA the Weed Nuns).
Cheated by her stealing, polygamist husband of 17 years, once high-flying corporate exec Christine Meeusen fled penniless with her three young children as her American dream began to unravel. Determined to make a living for her family, she discovered the lucrative business of cannabis farming and met her calling as founder of medicinal-marijuana empire Sisters of the Valley. Shedding her former life, Christine became Sister Kate; on a mission to provide her products to those in need. Fighting off the county sheriff, and protecting her crop from deadly black-market thieves, Breaking Habits is a story of rebellion, hope and revival. This is Sister Kate’s journey to becoming the head of a fast-growing enterprise, a voice for the unheard—and possibly the most controversial nun in the world.
The premiere screening at 7 PM at the Eureka Theater will be preceded by a meet and greet with Sister Kate and the Sisters at 5 PM, in the lobby of the theater.
Following the screening, there will be a Q & A with the Sisters.
Tickets $10 available at the door.
Breaking Habits directed by Robert Ryan, is not rated, and has a runtime of 87 minutes. Distributed by Good Deed Entertainment
