Thursday, May 22, 2014’s Chowdown

Humboldt is beautiful. This we know. So it is no surprise that, over the years, bunches of film-ish people have wanted to shoot their movies amidst our way-better surroundings, right? Sure.

Well, the folks at the Humboldt-Del Norte Film Commission are sick of you, John/Jane Q. Moviebuff, not having a map laying out all the local spots where scenes from significant films were shot. So they made one.

Thursday at 1 p.m., at the Gazebo in Old Town, the Filmed on the Redwood Coast ‘Map of the Movies’ will be unveiled. What is that? The map is a hand-held brochure that will lead you to various locations around Humboldt and Del Norte counties where potentially really famous people once had cameras pointed at them. You want to know this.

Have you started seeing markers like the Star Wars-y one below? Yeah, those are out there now. These maps will get you to them and you can get your own copy at your neighborhood chamber of commerce starting today. (OR there’s an online version here.) Make a Sunday drive out of it, maybe. —Andrew Goff

As far as Thursday night is concerned, you will note that it’s opening night for North Coast Repertory Theatre’s stab at Les Misérables, which runs through June 21. Or, if you don’t like being confined to seats, perhaps set a course for Jambalaya where you’ll find a tasteful double bill consisting of Austin-based melodious rockers Adrian and the Sickness (see them in all their YouTube glory below) and local hard rock supergroup Lord Ellis. -AG
