Film

Sci-Fi Pint & Pizza Night 6 p.m., Arcata Theater Lounge, 1036 G St., Arcata • Featuring Santa Claus (1959), a live action Mexican Christmas film depicting the adventures of Santa Claus in his annual Christmas rounds. This film is unique in its depiction of a Santa who works from outer space and does battle with a demon sent to Earth by Lucifer to ruin Christmas by killing Santa and “making all the children of the Earth do evil.” Several surreal dream sequences, the depiction of Santa as a bartender dispensing caustic, foaming cocktails, the movement and laughter of the mechanical reindeer, and a scene set in Hell further add to the possible perception of the film as “creepy.”
