The Humboldt-Del Norte Film Commission invites you to come to Eureka’s Sequoia Park for the first 2017 Movies in the Park outdoor movie screening. E.T.: The Extraterrestrial (1982), which features local Redwood Region filming locations, will be the feature film for the month of May. The free event starts at 7:00 PM with music, continues with Loony Tunes cartoons, with the feature film starting at dusk, around 8:45 p.m. on Saturday, May 27 at 3550 W Street in Eureka. The public is encouraged to dress warmly and arrive at 7:00 PM to enjoy music provided by local musician Michael Dayvid and find a place on the lawn for blankets and lawn chairs. Popcorn, candy, and refreshments will be available by donation.

To help celebrate Bike Month, the Film Commission is encouraging attendees to bike to the event. Bike Month Humboldt will be fitting free helmets and giving out information on bike safety, as well as, providing bike racks for parking. 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.

The other dates of the season will occur on June 24 with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, July 22 with Disney's Moana, and August 19 with The Neverending Story.
