Our Mission

The Eureka Concert & Film Center is dedicated to the education of the general public in film, theater, music and other art forms, rehabilitating and maintaining its historic facilities for instruction and public performances, displays, exhibits and other events.

Help Us Restore The Theater!

The Eureka Theater has numerous projects on our “to-do” list,  new roofs, repairs to our auditorium walls and ceiling, restoring murals, refurbishing 800 theater seats, and reopening our balcony.

Thanks to a loan from the Humboldt Area Foundation and Redwood Region Economic Development Commission, we have started a number of these projects. 

Our biggest project to come will be the rebuilding and restoration of iconic “EUREKA” sign.  We will be launching a fundraising campaign to light up this Eureka landmark. All of these repairs are expensive, but they’re worth it!  If you’d like to pitch in, feel free to sign up to volunteer and donate to our restoration fund.

Fresh off the heels of BC Project wrapping, the Humboldt-Del Norte Film Commission is partnering with the historic Eureka Theater to present the community-favorite 9th annual Red Carpet Gala on March 10th, 2024.
The Gala includes community awards for private/public entities and individuals that have excelled at being film friendly in our region. For over 100 years, 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. Most recent and noteworthy being the BC Project starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Sean Penn.
The doors will open at 3:30pm as glammed and dressed up folks in our community arrive to walk the red carpet into the Streamline Modern lobby of the Eureka Theater. Inside the lobby, guests will mingle and schmooze along with fellow fans of cinema and social butterflies, savor delightful hors d’oeuvres, and taste magnificent cocktails from the no-host bar, while enjoying music. In the Eureka Theater auditorium, a mouthwatering buffet will be served for your enjoyment. Pesky commercials will be replaced with the community Film-Friendly awards, videos, and music by RLA Trio.
A free screening of ABC’s live telecast of the 96th Annual Academy Awards will begin at 4:00 PM, projected on the big screen.
Gala advance tickets are $35 and can be purchased online at the link below. Tickets at the door will be $45. VIP Tables will also be available for $300 seating six and $400 seating eight. VIP Tables include tickets, priority entry, a bottle of champagne, plated appetizers, and bar table service. Tables are limited.
