ARCATA, CA — The Arcata Theatre Lounge is ready to open after a five year renovation.

“I can’t believe it’s finally here, I am so amazed,” said owner Lara Cox. Rather than showing new releases and blockbusters, the theater is taking the route of showing more artistic and avant-garde films. “There is not really a venue like this in the area,” said Mike Sargent, the head of cinema booking and advertising.

“We are not here to showcase blockbusters. We are looking to show more art films, documentaries and independent films,” said Sargent.

How sweet! What a wonderful, heartwarming story! It’s heartening to read/hear about another independent theatre re-opening. The Arcata Theatre looks like a beautiful theatre, too. All the best of luck for the people who reside in the area—hope they enjoy it to the fullest.
