The Minor Theatre

The Minor Theatre, built in 1914, the "oldest movie house in the West," is the subject of these videos. The first was directed and produced by Arcata High School students in the class of Janna Cox for the city's 150-year anniversary in 2014.  The second was produced in 2016 to celebrate the remodeling and reopening of the theater under new ownership.
