Thank you to the over 750 lovers of Humboldt who came out for the premiere of Love, Humboldt, 16 short films on Saturday at the Arcata Theatre Lounge. The response was far more than we had hoped for and we are grateful that so many people came out in support. We gave out 300 tickets and took RSVP’s for over 250, for a free event! Safety concerns and venue capacity limited the numbers of folks we could allow inside. We are so sorry to have been forced to turn away over 200 of you at the door. We are working on a second screening for you…stay tuned!
Thank you to the caterers and producers who gave their best treats for the premiere: Celebrations Catering, Wildberries Marketplace, The Looking Glass, North Coast Cooperative, Cassaro’s Catering, Old Town Coffee & Chocolates, Murphy’s Market & Deli, Loleta Bakery, Bless My Soul, Los Bagels, Henry’s Olives, Six Rivers Brewing, Lost Coast Brewery, Fish Brothers, Cypress Grove Chevre, and Eel River Organic Grassfed Beef.
