Action! (With Some Distance)

Posted By on Sat, Oct 3, 2020 at 6:25 PM

The city of Eureka posted on its Facebook page that sections of Sequoia Park and its trails will be closed on Saturday, Oct. 3 and Tuesday, Oct. 6, when one of two film crews — it's not stated which — will be shooting at the location. The Humboldt-Del Norte Film Commission had previously announced Humboldt would be hosting a couple of crews and that they would be following COVID-19 safety protocols, including working in pods, isolated from the community.

One of the films being shot locally is Afterward, based on the true local story of the Quigley family, whose 9-year-old daughter, Nicole, was killed in an accident caused by street racing in 2008 on State Route 299. It stars Terence Howard, Aaron Eckhart and George Lopez.

Mill Creek Theater Closes, Arcata Theater Lounge Opens

Posted By on Fri, Jul 10, 2020 at 9:24 AM

Last week, in accordance with county reopening steps, Coming Attractions Theaters announced it was opening its doors at its Broadway and Mill Creek locations, while Arcata Theater Lounge's website declared it would remain closed. A week later, Mill Creek has shuttered and the ATL is showing vintage sci-fi and animated features.

According to James Sandberg of Coming Attractions, the Mill Creek theater will not be showing films due to low attendance. Its opening over July 4 weekend simply didn't draw enough of an audience for, among other options, Bloodshot, The Hunt and Goonies.

Despite a confusing notice on the website that's since been updated, the Arcata Theatre Lounge had reopened for movie nights that first weekend. Co-owner Joe Ostini says he and partner Timmothy Overturf could have started serving food and drink when restaurants reopened, but decided, "It wasn't monetarily smart to reopen at the beginning because of everything we needed to have done." Instead, they waited until movie theaters were approved to open and opened their doors to an audience of around 40 for a sci-fi night on July 1.

The ATL website lists safety measures, including masking, temperature checks, limited and assigned seating for a maximum of 100 people. It also states the theater has the right to refuse anyone not following the rules. Ostini says so far that hasn't been necessary.

Dell’Arte to Operate at Reduced Capacity Over the Summer

Posted By on Thu, Jun 11, 2020 at 4:04 PM

Dell’Arte International announced Wednesday that due to the impact of COVID-19 and the cancelations of the school's Mad River Festival, Summer Intensive and other events, it will be operating at a reduced capacity over the summer in an effort to remain financially viable.

In a press release from the school, Managing Director Alyssa Hughlett says, “We hope that by dimming our lights these next few months we’ll be in a stronger position to welcome our students and community back to our studios, stages and all the spaces that have come to signify Dell’Arte.” The release states the school is not ceasing operations entirely and will be offering summer workshops over digital platforms.
