I see all these ghost hunting shows on tv, and they always investigate the same places. It's never anything new. I have a brilliant place for
someone to investigate. It's the Eureka Theater in Eureka, California a small town in humboldt county.
My dad used to be the manager at this movie theater, and we lived in the apartment on the top level of the theater when I was young. There were
stories of many people who had died there, including a young girl who was supposedly pushed off the balcony by a spirit, a man who fell to his death
while building the theater, and a couple other stories.
While we lived there, there were plenty of strange things that occured. Numberous employees left with no explanation, or were so terrified they never
came back. One employee told my dad that when the theater was about to close for the night, and the last movie had played, she went to go clean up the
theater and there was an old man still sitting in a chair. So she told him he had to go because the theater was closing, and he just looked up at her
without saying anything. She looked away and one second later, he was gone.
Another time, my brothers were bouncing a bouncy ball against the screen, and were seeing how high they could bounce it. Out of no where, something
came out of the curtain above the screen and grabbed the ball. Needless to say we ran out screaming.
My brother was chased up the stairs by a ghost.
I saw a spirit in the shape of an enormous spider and it was crawling up the bed towards me, and at the same time I looked to my right, and out of the
bathroom a small white figure with no features was walking out towards me.
The janitor who worked nights would play 3 stereos at the same time every night because he said it confused the ghosts, and he would hide behind
mirrors because he said the ghosts wouldnt find him there.
In one of the theater rooms, once the lights went off you could see the impression of someone pushing against the wall from the inside of the wall.
But once the lights turned on, nothing was there.
One employee was so terrified he ran out and threw his keys on the ground and never mentioned what happened to him.
We came home one day to see our hampsters dead laying side by side next to eachother.
So those are just a few of the things that happened there. It is truly a creepy place with plenty of history, and I believe now it is a performing
arts theater. but someone needs to investigate this place. It has a very strange atmosphere.
