When: Sun., June 24, 2:30 p.m. 2018
The Humboldt-Del Norte Film Commission and the Eureka Theater present another classic in our film series featuring movies filmed in the Redwood Region, Martini Matinees, sponsored by Couture Designer Consignment. Rising Hollywood screenwriter Peter Appleton (Jim Carrey) is blacklisted in the early 1950s Red Scare. Following a drunken car accident, he wakes with amnesia near the small town of Lawson, Calif., where the residents mistake him for Luke Trimble, a local boy declared missing in action during World War II. As Peter helps Luke’s father (Martin Landau) and high school sweetheart (Laurie Holden) reopen the town’s sole movie theater, questions arise about his true identity and motivations. Like the Film Commission’s other community film series, Movies in the Park, our monthly Martini Matinee screenings are FREE! Of course, donations will be accepted. The bartenders at the no-host bar will be mixing up classic and themed martinis for you to enjoy while you watch classic movies on the big screen. Beer, wine, and concessions will be also available, as always. The proceeds go toward the restoration of the theater.
