THURSDAY LOWDOWN: Director of Patagonia-Produced Wild Salmon Doc in Arcata

While Thursday's meet-and-greet with the actual creator of the Death Star has been canceled, sadly, there's still plenty in Thursday's Lowdown to entice. For one, the Arcata Theatre Lounge will again host Ocean Night, this month featuring a screening of Artifishal, a Patagonia-produced documentary that casts a critical eye at fish hatcheries and fish farms and their role in the decrease of wild salmon populations. Artifishal director Josh "Bones" Murphy will be in attendance for a post-film discussion. 

For info on Thursday's Artifishal screening here, and more events in your Lowdown listings just south of here.
