Bad Santa screening

Sasquatch Cinema is a monthly film night held at the new Shortwave cinema at 10 Bermondsey Square, London, SE1 3UN (Tel: 0207 357 6845). / nearest tube Borough (Northern line).

We will be showing an eclectic range of films including cult classics and rarities you may not have seen before.

The next film we will be showing is a late night screening of Bad Santa – staring Billy Bob Thornton on Friday, 11th December at 22:30.
The traditional Christmas tale will never be the same after this cleverly twisted and merrily irreverent story of a Santa so bad he’s wickedly funny. This is one of the best Christmas movies of recent years.
The cinema has a bar, and you can even bring your drinks in and watch the film!

The entry fee is £5.00. Tickets are sold on the night on a first come – first served basis. Email: gabzucc[at]yahoo.com for more info.
