"Have Yourself a Movie Little Christmas" (Free Screening + Reading)
Monday, December 6, 2010 at 7:00 PM (EST)
Brooklyn, United States
FREE SCREENING + READING, One Show Only!
Film critic Alonso Duralde presents a 50th anniversary screening of the cult classic SANTA CLAUS, the Mexican kiddie movie that warped an entire generation of kids north and south of the border. In this holiday epic from the director of WRESTLING WOMEN VS. THE AZTEC MUMMY, Santa Claus and his best bud Merlin the Wizard must team up to stop Satan from ruining Christmas. A combination of grammar-school surrealism and just-plain-bonkers-osity makes this a holiday classic you'll never forget -- and find yourself strangely drawn to each December.
"See All the Weird and Wonderful Characters of Make-Believe! The Fantastic Crystal Work-Room of the Happy Elves! The Fabulous Realm of the Candy-Stick Palaces!"

Duralde will sign copies of his new book "Have Yourself a Movie Little Christmas" (Limelight Editions) following the screening. For more info on the book and the author, please visit his official website: http://www.alonsoduralde.com/
