We will be showing the Mystery Science Theater edition. 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.

The doors open at 7:00 p.m. The show starts at 7:30 p.m.
Popcorn and a cash bar will be available.
(Donations are welcome, of course.)
