Film: Cult classic

Holiday film "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians" at the Bellows Falls Opera House, Dec. 14 at 7 the Square, Bellows Falls. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., Free. Call 603-313-0052 for information

This sci-fi holiday treat entered the cult canon when it was featured on an episode of Mystery Science Theatre 3000. Early special effects create green Martians living on the planet Mars, who capture Santa Claus from earth so that their depressed children can be happy. But in the end, Santa teaches everyone the true meaning of Christmas.

The sets are kitschy, the costumes outrageous and the acting is what you'd expect! Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and seating is general admission. Running time is 69 minutes. All manner of holiday dress is encouraged! Contact Susan MacNeil at 603-313-0052 or email for more information.
