On Sunday, March 2, the past and present will come together as the historic Eureka Theater's 75th Anniversary Jubilee Celebration meets the Humboldt-Del Norte Film Commission's Oscar Party!
The event begins at 5:00 p.m. 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, sample scrumptious appetizers and partake in 1939 cocktails from the no host bar.
ABC's live telecast of the 86th Annual Academy Awards will begin at 5:30 p.m., projected on the big screen in the Eureka Theater auditorium at no charge for guests of the party. When on break, historic footage from Hollywood's Golden Age will be shown and chocolate Oscars will be given for accurate guesses of the winners for five Academy Award categories.
The event falls during the Eureka Theater’s 75th anniversary celebration and is part of their effort to increase support for restoration of the historic theater. This will be the Film Commission’s second year holding an Academy Awards party. Both the Eureka Theater and the Humboldt-Del Norte Film Commission are not-for-profit entities.
Tickets for the party are $20 per person (include the free screening of the Academy Awards) and are on sale at Annex 39 in Eureka (located next door to the Eureka Theater), at the Eureka Chamber of Commerce, and online at www.redcarpethumboldt.brownpapertickets.com.
