Holiday Movie Night: Santa Claus Conquers the Martians

Renowned as a holiday cult classic, SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS is one of the most amusing films ever made.

It tells the story of the depressed children of Mars, who can only be brought out of their funk through the jolly cheer of Old St. Nick. So the Martian leaders travel to Earth and kidnap two local kids (one played by an 8-year-old Pia Zadora) and Kris Kringle himself. Brought back to the Red Planet, they are forcibly installed in a factory to make toys. But you can't manufacture happiness, with Santa having to teach his alien overseers the true meaning of Christmas.

Filled with kitschy set design, outrageous costumes and amiable acting, SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS is nonstop fun, and is worthy of its status as a holiday staple.

This movie will be held outside on Museum grounds. Please bring your own snacks, chairs, and blankets. In case of inclement weather this will be held inside our Market Hall Event Space.
