PRIMAL RAGE (2018) – Exclusive North Coast Premiere!

February 16, 2018 | 8:00 PM

Bigfoot is coming, and he’s not happy.

Primal Rage, the Hollywood-produced Bigfoot horror movie that filmed almost entirely in the redwood region during 2015 and 2016, will have an exclusive North Coast premiere February 16th at the Eureka Theater.

The film tells the story of a couple who end up lost while passing through the redwoods. As they try to find their way back to civilization, the couple soon realizes that there is something big in the forest with them…and it doesn’t seem to be friendly.

Major scenes in the movie involving the 7-foot-tall hairy monster were filmed on Smith River’s Palmer Westbrook Ranch, whose property was also utilized for scenes in 1983’s E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial.

The North Coast premiere, on Friday, February 16th, will be a benefit for the ongoing restoration of the Eureka Theater. Doors will open at 7 PM, with the film starting at 8 PM. Tickets are $10 and only available at the door. Come early, special screenings at the Eureka Theater can sell out. A portion of the proceeds will also go to the Clarke Historical Museum. Producer Edward Olson will be on hand to introduce the film.

At present, no other theaters in Humboldt or Del Norte Counties are scheduled to show Primal Rage, so this North Coast premiere may be the only chance to see it on the big screen before an eventual VOD and DVD/Blu-ray release.

Primal Rage is rated R by the MPAA. It includes scenes of intense violence and isn’t suitable for all audiences.

Fourth Friday Flix: CITY LIGHTS (1931)

February 23, 2018 | 7:30 PM

“Of all Chaplin’s features, probably his most universally beloved is City Lights,” says Andrew Sarris. Albert Einstein is said to have cried with laughter at the film’s world premiere in Los Angeles in 1931. Described by Chaplin as “a comedy romance in pantomime,” this winning mix of slapstick, sentiment and social criticism has the Tramp falling in love with a blind flower girl. When he discovers that her sight can be restored with an expensive operation, he goes to extraordinary lengths to raise the necessary money — including an hilariously ill-advised turn as a prizefighter. She, for her part, believes her unseen benefactor to be a handsome millionaire. A synchronized musical score and comic sound effects were Chaplin’s only concessions to the new sound era; the film has nary a word of spoken dialogue. Jean Harlow appears as an extra in the nightclub sequence. James Agee called the famed final scene “the highest moment in the movies.” “The most wistfully Chaplinesque of Chaplin features” (J. Hoberman). “Of all the comedies ever made, City Lights is the best — Chaplin’s best, probably anybody’s best. . . It packs an emotional wallop” (Woody Allen).

Tickets are $5.00 all ages. Doors open at 7:00 PM, movie starts at 7:30 PM.

B&W, silent with musical score. 87 mins.

House of Floyd: the Pink Floyd Concert Experience

House of Floyd — Pink Floyd

Saturday, April 28, 2018

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.

House of Floyd is a 7-piece band that includes 2 bookend multi-instrumentalists that double on saxophone, keyboards and guitar, and 2 excellent female background vocalists. House of Floyd has been performing in concert venues for over 11 years in the U.S. and abroad including a recent month long tour of India.
In the Pink Floyd tradition, a HOUSE OF FLOYD concert incorporates sound effects, screen projection, moving lights & state of the art laser show. The set lists on any given night might be from an actual Pink Floyd concert, or a custom HOUSE OF FLOYD mix.
You may even see a giant inflatable pig!

Tickets available at Wildberries in Arcata, The Works in Eureka, and the Eureka Theater Box Office at Annex 39, 610 F Street, Eureka.
