It's that time again to play that timeless Christmas classic. No, not It's a Wonderful Life. I'm talking about the classic with good ol' Santa Claus bringing joy to everyone. No, not Miracle on 34th Street. I'm talking about Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, with Santa Claus and Dropo, the laziest martian on Mars. Rifftrax is bringing back one of the movies made famous in MST3K (and became a staple during the Comedy Channel/Central era) and broadcasting it in theaters nationwide.
We will be meeting in the lobby of the Showplace ICON. I usually get there at around 6:00, so if you want to come around then, that's fine. There is a parking garage at the theater and parking is free. If you're coming by train, it's near the Roosevelt stop on the red line. We'll be heading into the theater at about 6:45. Seating is reserved so buy your tickets in advance. I'm seated at H7 if you want to join me. If you're seated somewhere else, not a problem. We usually meet afterward and head upstairs to the restaurant for some bacon popcorn (mmmmm........bacon popcorn). So join us as we see Santa, Kimar, Voldar, and Dropo on the big screen. Hooray for Santy Claus!
