Celebrate winter solstice with the Bad Film Society
Celebrate Bad Film Society’s kooky Winter Solstice Santa Extravaganza at 6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 21, in the basement of the Ashland Elks building.
Use the entrance on Will Dodge Way, the alley between East Main Street and Lithia Way and First and Second streets, Ashland.
The feature will be a schlocky 1964 holiday staple, “Santa Claus Conquers the Martians.” Filled with bad acting, props and sets, Martians kidnap Santa and force him to make toys. Will Santa make it back to Earth and his elves in time for Christmas?
Two dark and hilarious Finnish short films about domesticating feral Santas also will be shown. Bring a potluck dish to share and a wrapped, totally bad present for a gift exchange. Admission is a donation of $4 to benefit the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. See www.badfilmsociety.org.
