Here’s a bit of news for the North Floridians with a sweet tooth for schlock: Kino Kola, the excellent monthly outdoor screening series at the All Saints Hop Yard, is doing its final screening of the year on December 15th.  The theme is demented children’s Christmas movies and it delivers a double shot of Yuletide lunacy with Santa Claus Conquers The Martians and the infamous Mexican favorite Santa Claus.  Read for all the Kris Kringle kraziness, including the location, time and sample trailers and images from each flick…

Kino-Kola Double Feature presents: “Kiddie X-mas Brain Rot!”

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Celebrate the holidays with schlocky grandeur at the Hop Yard on Saturday, December 15th as Kino-Kola presents a sugary yuletide confection sure to leave the whole family blissfully lobotomized! This outdoor cult cinema double-bill aims to charm the demented child trapped inside of us all, starting with the incongruous space-age oddity, SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS (1964). Afterwards, Old St. Nick will continue to demonstrate his might in the universe as he wages battle against Satan himself in the Mexican-produced kid flick, SANTA CLAUS (1959).

So, grab your favorite lawn chair and gather ’round the bonfire with a mug of mulled spiced wine and cookies as we revel in the soft cinematic glow of holiday b-movies. Caroling is not unwelcome as The Hop Yard gates open at 7:30pm to a winter wonderland of craft beer and artisanal wine!
