In case you'd forgotten in all the holiday hubbub: Chicago and Seattle are the first two stops on the New Cult Canon screening tour, and both events are happening this week! On Wednesday, November 28, we'll be celebrating in our home base of Chicago, at Lincoln Hall (tickets here), and on Thursday, November 29, we'll be in Seattle at Central Cinema (tickets here). At both stops, we'll be screening the Christmas classic Bad Santa, and we'll be joined by director Terry Zwigoff, who will also present a very special slideshow and participate in a Q&A. (Scott Tobias will lead the discussion in Chicago; Nathan Rabin in Seattle.)
Don't forget, there are ten more stops on the New Cult Canon tour after this one, including three screenings of 1974's Black Christmas, with special appearances by Margot Kidder. All the dates are here. And don't forget: The whole tour is presented by Mike's Hard Lemonade, and there will be sampling of their new flavors at every stop.
