Humota to close Friday and reopen with new seats

The Humota Theater will be closing temporarily on Friday, Feb. 1, as the theater’s operation transitions from corporate ownership to a community-run non-profit.
Theatergoers and members of the public can look forward to a Humota makeover when the cinema opens in February.
The Humota will have new seats! Or at least different seats for the new community-run enterprise.
“A gracious anonymous donor has given us 350 high-back theater seats that are very comfortable and will be a great addition to the improvements we want to make at the Humota,” Humota Movie Group Board President Chad Theesfeld reports.
Theesfeld and his son, Carter, along with Board members Stacey Origer and Jeff Knutson spent a day last week loading up the seats and hauling them to Humboldt.
“MS and Sons graciously donated the use a of semi-tractor and trailer to transport the seats here,” Theesfeld said.
