You can finally stop wondering what the hell is going on in that trippy Woodshock movie
Kirsten Dunst filmed here in Humboldt two summers ago. On Saturday, Sept. 9, you can see it at a pair of special screenings at the Minor Theater, well ahead of the Sept. 29 regular local release. The Humboldt-Del Norte Film Commission, which hosts the showings with the theater, celebrates locals who worked on the movie at first showing at 6:30 p.m. with a catered, red carpet event for $30. Another screening (without all the frills) follows at 10 p.m. for $9.50. You can get tickets from the Minor and online here
. Kirsten Dunst won't be there but there'll be plenty of popcorn and candy to feed your feelings.
The film commission's press release touts the production, which was filmed entirely in our county, bringing in "$800,000 in direct spending on equipment rentals, accommodations, catering and other production needs." Film Commissioner Cassandra Hesseltine also provides crib notes for spotting familiar locales, noting that "locations included private homes in Bayside, the Arcata plaza, the Logger Bar in Blue Lake, a storefront in Old Town Eureka (now Sew & Vac Plus!), and multiple redwood groves along the Avenue of the Giants."
