Before you scramble to figure out what to get your relatives and loved ones a present for Christmas, treat yourself to the gift of RiffTrax Live. This time, they’ll be taking on the campy “Santa Claus Conquers the Martians.”
Fathom Events will be streaming this special presentation to theaters nationwide on Dec. 5. The event will be broadcasted live at 8 ET/7 p.m. CT and tape-delayed at 8 PT/ 7 p.m. MT. But be sure to get there about 30 minutes early to get good seats and for a hilarious pre-show.
Admission is $11.50 for adults; $10.50 for students and seniors; and $9.50 for children. Tickets can be purchased on the Fathom Events website or by visiting your local theater’s box office.
The Martians of Mars have become obsessed with Earth-based television programming, which glorifies this jolly man in the red suit known as Santa. Upset that they don’t have their own Santa, the Martians decide to journey to Earth to kidnap him and bring him back to their planet.
“Santa Claus Conquers the Martians” was spoofed during the “Mystery Science Theater 3000” era. This live event will be full of brand new material.
