Movies in the Park

The Humboldt-Del Norte Film Commission invites you to come to Eureka’s Sequoia Park for the third 2016 Movies in the Park outdoor movie screening. The free event starts at 7:00 p.m. with a DJ, continues with Loony Tunes cartoons, and the feature film starting at dusk, around 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 23, at 3550 W Street in Eureka.

In this thrilling continuation of the epic space opera, ex-stormtrooper Finn (John Boyega), scrappy desert dweller Rey (Daisy Ridley), and droid companion BB-8 get caught up in a galactic war when they come across a map containing the whereabouts of the vanished Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). They soon embark on an epic adventure that brings them face-to-face with heroes from the past, as well as new villains such as Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and the First Order, a fascist regime that has emerged from the ashes of the old Empire. Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Peter Mayhew, and Anthony Daniels return to reprise their roles as, respectively, Leia Organa, Han Solo, Chewbacca, and C-3PO. Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Gwendoline Christie co-star. J.J. Abrams directed from a script he co-wrote with Lawrence Kasdan and Michael Arndt. The film also features new contributions from composer John Williams and sound designer Ben Burtt, whose familiar palette of sounds have helped define the Star Wars universe. (Author: Violet LeVoit)

The public is encouraged dress warmly and arrive starting at 7:00 p.m. to enjoy music provided by a DJ and find a place on the lawn for blankets and lawn chairs. Popcorn, candy, and refreshments will be available by small donation.

There will be an information table set up on site with Film Commission volunteers answering questions about the non-profit organization’s mission of promoting film in the Redwood Region and the services offered to film productions.
