Pick a day


Friday, May 31, 2013's Lowdown

The most film premieringest week in Humboldt County history rolls on.

Bigfoot will finally be revealed Friday night at the Arcata Theatre Lounge during a special screening of Willow Creek, the brand spankin' new found footage horror quasi-doc from director Bobcat Goldthwait. (Since Lowdown space is limited, for more on the film check out the LoCO's writeup a couple months back and/or scope out Ryan "Ape Canyon" Burns' chat with Bobcat in this week's Journal.)

Of course, a highlight of Friday's proceedings will be a live Q&A session with the wily Bobcat himself. The man participated in a similar grilling at the film's only other public screening thus far last month at IFFBoston (highlight video below). Study up, Humboldt, so we can be sure to cover new ground.

Scared of Bigfoot/Bigfoot people? More Friday options in your Lowdown below.
