Description

Oscar-nominated filmmaker Terry Zwigoff (Crumb; Ghost World) presents his director’s cut of the dark comedy classic Bad Santa, the story of two conmen (Billy Bob Thornton and Tony Cox) who dress as Santa and his little helper to rob department stores and who run into problems with a troubled kid and a suspicious store detective. 

A special pre-show will feature Zwigoff’s rare clips and real “bad Santa” images along with “true bad holiday” stories presented by Porchlight and hosted by Peaches Christ Production’s Joshua Grannell. After the film, Zwigoff will be joined for a Q&A by actors Tony Cox (Thornton’s partner-in-crime “Marcus”) and Lauren Tom (Marcus’s materialistic wife, “Lois”) and moderator Jeffrey Anderson. Come dressed in your “baddest” holiday/Santa gear. Rated R.
