Opening night at the Humota

New seats, new carpeting, improved Dolby sound and a wider screen that you would find at multiplexes will greet moviegoers at the new and improved Humota Theater in downtown Humboldt. Independent photo by Kent Thompson, graphic illustration by Jen Jensen.

The big news is that Thursday (April 25) is opening night at the Humota. It's the grand-reopening since the theater closed on Feb. 1.
A local non-profit group of volunteer community members are re-opening the theater with a special showing of the Avengers: Endgame at 7 p.m. The theater will be open for business with two showings nightly during the week on every night but Monday, when the theater will be closed. For this attraction, there will be four showings on Saturdays and Sundays.
It is only fitting that the first movie to play in the newly remodeled and community-operated Humota Theater is the non-stop action flick Avengers: Endgame.
Because it has been non-stop action at the historic entertainment venue located at 515 Sumner Ave., since the theater closed on Feb. 1. Theatergoers will notice many changes to the theater. There are 261 high-back seats that were donated in late February and were installed earlier this month. There is new carpeting throughout and bathrooms on the west side of the theater were gutted and remodeled. The new Humota is fully ADA compliant, with wider doorways, aisles and room for four wheelchairs in the theater. The concession stand area has been completely redone. The theater has undergone several computer upgrades and has a new audio upgrade from Dolby 5.1 to Dolby 7.1 sound.
Ticket prices will remain the same as before, $5 for adults, $4 for children and seniors over age 60, or for college student or military members with a valid ID. Matinee prices are $4 for all seats.
