Here are a few photos of the new candlestick sign, which was mounted on Wednesday, October 10th. It was very exciting, and we had many people standing around taking photos and watching the progress. Ramsay Sign Co. did a super job of installation and replicating the original sign, and we are very proud to be able to light up our corner of downtown Hoquiam. The electrical is scheduled to be hooked up on Friday, and an official lighting ceremony will be held on Tuesday, October 16th at 7:00 pm. Our plan is to have the neon turned on all evenings from dusk until late night.
Here’s our movie committee, the ones who select our regular movie series. We meet in October each year and come up with the movies for the next year. Our Silver Screen Classics series is chosen by David Akers, who, along with his wife Ginger (both board members), manage that series. We haven’t made the full list known yet, but you can see some of the choices on the tablet in the background. How do we choose? We research and watch movies all year, and we get ideas from others, from our Facebook fans, and many members of the committee are great movie buffs – so they just know. It’s hard to pick movies that will appeal to the most people, but we do a pretty good job of it. We’ll post next year’s lineup soon, after licensing is confirmed.
The installation of the new sign is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, October 9th!
Struggling writer Paul Varjak (George Peppard) moves into a New York apartment building and becomes intrigued by his pretty, quirky neighbor Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn). Holly’s lifestyle confuses and fascinates Paul; in public she flits through parties with a sexy, sophisticated air, but when they’re alone she changes into a sweetly vulnerable bundle of neuroses.
The movie received an Oscar for Best Music, Original Song, for the song Moon River.

While living an an average family house in a pleasant neighborhood, the youngest daughter of the Freeling family, Carol Anne, seems to be connecting with the supernatural through a dead channel on the television. It is not for long when the mysterious beings enter the house’s walls. At first seeming like harmless ghosts, they play tricks and amuse the family, but they take a nasty turn- they horrify the family to death with angry trees and murderous dolls, and finally abduct Carol Anne into her bedroom closet, which seems like the entrance to the other side.
Starring Craig T. Nelson and JoBeth Williams
