Alternative Christmas classics: Bad Santa & Gremlins at Moviehouse

Bad Santa is back on the big screen at Moviehouse Dublin Road in Belfast tomorrow

IF YOU'RE a 'bah humbug' kind of person enduring the current outbreak of festive cheer with your fizzog set firmly to 'grimace', no doubt the delightfully rude and crude Bad Santa ranks pretty highly on your list of Christmas movie favourites.

Rather than throwing yet more precious existence away on panicked last-minute gifting on the final Saturday before the dreaded day arrives, why not spend tomorrow relaxing while looking forward to revisiting this ribald Billy Bob Thornton classic on the big screen at Moviehouse Dublin Road in Belfast?

In fact, you should make it a double-bill with another 'alternative Xmas' movie selection: prior to Bad Santa at 9.15pm, the Moviehouse will also be showing Joe Dante's brilliant 1984 Christmas-set creature feature Gremlins tomorrow evening at 7pm, which should please everyone who missed the recent screening at QFT Belfast with star Zach 'Billy Peltzer' Galligan.
