After the release of Jake Blues from prison, he and brother Elwood go to visit “The Penguin”, the last of the nuns who raised them in a boarding school. They learn the Archdiocese will stop supporting the school and will sell the place to the Education Authority. The only way to keep the place open is if the $5000 tax on the property is paid within 11 days. The Blues Brothers want to help, and decide to put their blues band back together and raise the the money by staging a big gig. As they set off on their “mission from God” they seem to make more enemies along the way. Will they manage to come up with the money in time?

Harbor Happenings: Reel Life in the 1920s

March 9 @ 2:00 and 7:00 – Tickets $7

Tickets available at City Drug in Aberdeen, Harbor Drug in Hoquiam, Brown Paper Tickets and at the door

Premiere presentation of the UW Libraries documentary based on the discovery of historic newsreels from Grays Harbor.

Join us at the special premier 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.

A few 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.

Staff from the UW Libraries team who were part of this project will also be making a presentation.  A selection of the newsreels will be presented and narrated by representatives of the Polson Museum and Aberdeen Museum of History.

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.

But Lina – well, even with the best efforts of a diction coach, they still decide to dub over her voice.

From the 7th Street Theatre Association Board

The 7th Street Theatre Association appreciates all of our patrons and our volunteers.  Without you we would not be able to present our movie series, our concerts, and provide a community venue for others to entertain our wonderful community.

Many have requested to purchase bricks again.  We have found someone who will come onsite and engrave the bricks.  This is a great time of year to purchase an engraved brick for someone you care about.  Just download the form, fill it out, and send it in.  The bricks will be engraved in batches of around 15, so if you want to order one for this year, be sure to get your order in soon!

Also, we still have some of our Keepsake Chests, which were hand-crafted by local woodworker Mark Walden, from our original stage floor.  Each chest is engraved and numbered. There is a limited supply of these one-of-a-kind treasure chests.  They can be found during this holiday season at Harbor Drug in Hoquiam.  The chests sell for $65 each (includes sales tax).
