Weekly What To Do: Christmas Means Movies And Little Else

Time to see what's in theaters, because they're ain't a lot this week as it is Christmas. So come together, go get Chinese food and see a movie or celebrate Christmas.

Wed, Dec 19, 7:30pm
Egyptian Theatre 6712 Hollywood Boulevard
Hollywood, CA 90028
$ whatever, it's worth it

This is crazy, both that they got a copy to play and the movie itself. This baby, Deadly Games aka Dial Code: Santa Claus comes from France 1989. A rich little boy who lives in a castle/mansion must defend his home and his nearly blind Grandpa from a murderous Santa Claus on Christmas Eve. It is in no way what you can imagine.

They're back! After an extended slumber upon a pile of VHS cassettes, the minds behind Horrible Movie Night awoke with a pressing desire to share some newly-acquired movies with their lovely fans. Your hosts for the evening, JOHN MATHOT (Disney's Star Vs. the Forces of Evil) and SUSAN WRIGHT (The Because Show podcast) will present 1996's Christmas disaster SANTA WITH MUSCLES. Hulk Hogan stars as a reckless millionaire who, after a blow to the head, believes he is Santa Claus. He runs afoul of an evil scientist attempting to take over an orphanage (featuring Mila Kunis in one of her first roles, as one of the orphans). Add SNL's Garrett Morris, and you got yourself a hell of a movie!

The Music Center's Dorothy Chandler Pavilion
As Los Angeles’ largest multicultural holiday celebration, the FREE 59th annual L.A. County Holiday Celebration, presented by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, provides Angelenos of all ages an opportunity to come together during the holidays to experience and honor the dynamic, rich cultures of the County. During the event, many diverse L.A. - based artists and community groups showcase their talent, artistry and traditions on The Music Center’s iconic Dorothy Chandler Pavilion stage. Founded in 1959 by the late Kenneth Hahn, supervisor of the Second District of Los Angeles County for 40 years (from 1952-1992) and an advocate for access to the arts, the free three-hour live production features instrumental music, choral music and dance performances. The show is broadcast live in Southern California on PBS SoCal (KOCE), live streamed on and presented live at The Music Center.
