Ken Faraoni Film Noir Series: Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (1964)

December 20, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Each month we offer one midweek movie madness hosted by Ken Faraoni, national bronze artist and well-established expert of this cinematic genre. Ken Faraoni will discuss these movies, their cultural and historic importance, implications and representation of society at the time in an entertaining, humorous way.

This month’s film is Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (1964).

The ruler of Mars, Kimar, has decided that the Martian children are under the spell of Earthian pop culture. In order to motivate the children, he kidnaps Santa Claus hoping that the jolly old soul will fix their mood. Two Earth kids get kidnapped in the process, causing all kinds of new problems for Kimar.

Join us for a hilarious night engaging with this B-movie classic, and feel free to engage with the film MST3000 style.

Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Film starts at 7:30 p.m.

Merry Christmas everyone, this month is pay-as-you-wish! If you have the scratch, donate a bit to keep our film series going, or if you don’t, then no worries!
