Pop quiz

I recently took the photo above in Humboldt County. Can you name the location?

Yes. The picture was taken in a theater.

Ok. You get an A+ for that answer. Now, for extra credit, can you name the theater?

Is this the new/old Arcata Theater?

Uhhhhh....Hmmmmm...just give me a second and I'll try and come up with something.

Oh, how about the new/old Arcata Theater?

That photo, taken Monday, is of the Orick Theater. There are 320 seats and the place is immaculate. I'm not clear on the dates, so don't quote me on this, but I believe the theater opened around 1960 and closed at the end of the decade.

If I can overcome some technical obtacles, I'll post a copy of a showbill the owner gave me, circa 1962.
