Due to popular request, we are showing films made on the Harbor. Each movie is only one night, so come spend the evening with us each night and have twice as much fun.

McQ was filmed in Aberdeen, the Quinault Indian Reservation and Seattle. Police Lieutenant Lon McQ investigates the killing of his best friend and uncovers corrupt elements of the police department dealing in confiscated drugs. Starring John Wayne, Eddie Albert and Diana Muldaur.

Ring of Fire was filmed on the Wynoochee River and in Vernonia, Oregon. Frank Henderson and his girlfriend, Bobbie ‘Skidoo’ Adams, are on the run from the law when apprehended and arrested by Sergeant Steve Walsh. During the transport to jail Frank Henderson escapes and in the ensuing chase a forest fire is started. The nearby small town is threatened and the only means of escape is by train, led by Sergeant Steve Walsh. Starring Frank Gorshin, Joyce Taylor and David Janssen.

Viva Las Vegas (1964)

Fri & Sat Jan 10 & 11 @ 7:30


Available at Brown Paper Tickets, City Drug, Harbor Drug,  and at the door 30 minutes before the movie

IMPORTANT NEWS!!! Due to extreme weather and the chance of high winds tonight (Saturday), we are canceling Viva Las Vegas. Please pass the word to anyone you know who was planning to come to the movie tonight, especially those who do not have Internet.

During any power outages (even very short ones) our fire curtain drops and has to be manually cranked back up. We will feel much better if everyone stays home tonight and not be out in this storm.

Thank you and we apologize for any inconvenience.

Celebrate Elvis Presley’s birthday with us. Viva Las Vegas is having its own special anniversary this year, its 50th!

Lucky Jackson arrives in town with his car literally in tow ready for the first Las Vegas Grand Prix – once he has the money to buy an engine. He gets the cash easily enough but mislays it when the pretty swimming pool manageress takes his mind off things. It seems he will lose both race and girl, problems made more difficult by rivalry from Elmo Mancini, fellow racer and womanizer. Perhaps some singing will help.

Locally sponsored by Grays Harbor College, Levee Lumber, and Washingtonian Print/Bookee’s Den.

The Nutcracker Suite

Told in five separate scenes, The Nutcracker Ballet is the story of a young German girl, Clara, a Christmas gift from her mysterious god father, Drosselmeyer, a Nutcracker Prince and an enchanted journey. Choreography unique to each scene includes some of the best known dancing and most beloved music in all of ballet.
The story opens as guests arrive for a Christmas Eve party at the Stahlbaum house. Drosselmeyer arrives with magical gifts, including a toy nutcracker for Clara.
Clara tip-toes back to the Christmas tree to check on her nutcracker after the party winds down. She falls asleep cradling him in her arms. The clock strikes midnight and the room is invaded by an army of mice led by an evil Mouse King. The Nutcracker wakes and leads his army against the mice.
The Nutcracker is transformed into a handsome Prince (Cavalier). Together, he and Clara embark upon a magical journey to the Land of Snow where they are welcomed by dancing snowflakes.
Awakening from her dream, Clara finds herself back in her own home by her Christmas tree, with her beloved Nutcracker.

Harbor Happenings: Newsreels of CD Anderson (final presentation)

Sat Nov 23  –  7:30 – Doors at 6:30

All tickets $7

Available at Harbor Drug in Hoquiam, City Drug in Aberdeen, Brown Paper Tickets, and at the door at 6:30

Join us for the second presentation of the historical documentary “Grays Harbor Happenings:  The Newsreels of C.D. Anderson,” produced by the UW Libraries in partnership with the 7th Street Theatre Association, the Aberdeen Museum of History and the Polson Museum.  Proceeds will benefit the 7th St. Theatre Association, the Aberdeen History Museum and the Polson Museum.

DVDs will be available for sale in the lobby before and after the event.  DVDs are $25.

We’ll also be showing a couple of extra short films regarding local history prior to the Harbor Happenings documentary.

Over eight years ago, a cardboard box of 35mm nitrate films was discovered in a commercial storage unit in Seattle.  They were given to the UW Libraries Special Collections.  It was very clear that urgent preservation was needed to save the deteriorating films.  After they preserved, it was revealed that the films were amateur newsreels, showing small town life in Grays Harbor County from over 80 years ago.  The newsreels record local celebrations including a Captain Kidd’s Pirates Picnic, a local football match and an impressive parade of cars celebrating the opening of the Aberdeen-Willapa Highway. They also show other noteworthy events including a recreation of the S.S. Halco shipwreck.  The documentary will include selections from the newsreels and interviews with local Grays Harbor County historians and researchers who have helped identify the locations and content of the films.

The film would not have been possible without the efforts of the UW Libraries Special Collections and the support of many other organizations including the Apex Foundation, the Grays Harbor Community Foundation, the UW Alumni Association and UWTV.
