Bad Santa with Conjurer’s Kitchen (dir: Terry Zwigoff, 2003, cert 15)
If the whole Christmas spirit thing is just not for you then Billy Bob Thornton’s anti-social, alcoholic, anal sex loving Santa is the perfect antidote. A foul mouthed degenerate thief who with his dwarf sidekick robs department stores each yuletide season whilst posing as an instore Santa and elf. Hilariously gross but be warned, if you really hate Christmas that much, the curmudgeonly seasonal misanthrope Willy Soke still manages to learn a valuable festive lesson from relentlessly cheery kid Therman Merman. As part of this screening those master food manipulators from Conjurer’s Kitchen will be providing another evening of bizarre gourmetry.  Annabel de Vetten has designed a Bad Christmas dinner to befuddle, bedazzle and confuse your tastebuds. It might look like a turkey but does it taste like a turkey? The audience are also encouraged to take part in Bad Secret Santa, maximum budget of £3, cheap and tacky please.

Tue 13 Dec 8pm at Electric, Station Street, Birmingham B5 4DY £20.70
