Welcome to Big Picture Movies! We are pleased to offer drive-up movies for Humboldt County. Enjoy a night out and watch a movie on our giant outdoor screen! Movies start at sundown, and the audio is broadcast on FM radio. This week's movie is The Majestic starring Jim Carrey
Jim Carrey plays Peter Appleton, an egoistic studio scriptwriter in post-WW2 Hollywood. Appleton's career is just getting off the ground when his name comes to the attention of a Congressional committee investigating the Communist affiliations of prominent Americans. Finding himself blacklisted by his studio, Appleton drinks too much then goes for a long drive to try and sort things out. He awakens on a deserted beach near a small town only to discover he has amnesia and can't remember anything about his past. But that doesn't stop the town residents from remembering him as Luke Trimble, a much-beloved hometown kid to whom Appleton bears an uncanny resemblance. In the weeks that follow, the townspeople "remind" Appleton why Luke was so well-liked and finds himself living up to a new set of values he never possessed prior to his accident -- and liking himself the better for it.
