Special Christmas Screenings This December

With the New Bev selling out for it's Christmas horror night with thought we'd better tell you about some of the other special Christmas screenings you can still get tickets to this December.

Fri, Dec 3, Doors 6pm, show 7pm.
3044 Rosslyn Street, Los Angeles, CA 90065 (off San Fernando Rd.)
Free admission ("pass the hat" donations benefit 3044 Rosslyn)
Parking: there is ample weekend street parking available in the immediate area

1st half: a "condensed" version of Jack Frost (1998).  One of the strangest mainstream movies of the '90s, this inexplicable family comedy stars Michael Keaton as a rock musician reincarnated into a sentient snowmam (yes, this movie actually does exist.)  Whacko CGI aside, this is a wonderful thing to experience with a crowd for its audacity.

2nd half: Film critic Alonso Duralde (The Wrap) joins us for a lively Q&A about the Christmas movie genre.  Alonso literally wrote the book on Xmas movies
, and I'm stoked to chat it up with him onstage.
