This is THE Oscar party you've been waiting for! Past and present come together to celebrate 100 years of filming in Humboldt/Del Norte County and to watch the Oscars in style, as the historic Eureka Theater partners with the Humboldt-Del Norte Film Commission to present their annual Red Carpet Gala! The event begins at 5:00 PM as guests arrive and walk the red carpet into the Streamline Moderne lobby of the Eureka Theater. Inside the lobby, guests can mingle and schmooze with fellow movie fans and social butterflies, sample scrumptious hors d'oeuvres, and quaff fabulous cocktails and champagned from the no-host bar. ABC's live telecast of the 88th Annual Academy Awards will begin at 5:30 PM, projected on the big screen in the Eureka Theater auditorium. Pesky commercials will be replaced with our own local awards, plus a few surprises. Our emcee for the evening will be actor/writer Kurtis Bedford (HBO's Getting On). So hire the sitter, get glammed up, and show your support for the Humboldt-Del Norte Film Commission and the restoration of the historic Eureka Theater!
