FAMILY FILM FESTIVAL WITH NORMAN THE NUTCRACKER

I just learned of a great event happening tomorrow at the Quincy Street Conference and Event Center.

Join Norman The Nutcracker For a Fun Filled Afternoon Watching 3 Classic Christmas Movies That Have Not Been Shown Together In Topeka Since The Orpheum Theater Closed in 1968.

Admission Is Only A $5.00 Donation Which Gets You These 3 Great Films, A Bag of Popcorn and a Drink.

THIS IS A BRING YOUR OWN CHAIR EVENT!

The 3 Films That Will Be Shown Are:

THE CHRISTMAS THAT ALMOST WASN'T (1966)
Phineas T. Prune is an old miser who holds the deed to the North Pole. It seems that Santa Claus is behind in paying his rent. Prune plans to have Santa, Mrs. Claus, and the elves evicted and keep the Christmas toys. Santa asks Sam Whipple for help. Can Whipple and the children around the world help Santa and prevent Christmas from being canceled?

SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS (1964)
Santa Claus is Kidnapped by Green Wet Suit wearing Martians to bring Christmas Presents to Martian Children who are not having fun. Without a doubt the cheesiest, low budget Christmas Movie ever made. It is so bad that it is joyfully good fun. Stars an 8 year old Pia Zadora.

THE SNOW QUEEN (1957)
"One Snowflake Two, Three Snowflake Four, You'll See The Snow Queen If You Count A Million More." Thus goes the intro by Art Linkletter of this marvelously animated Russian rendition of the classic Hans Christian Anderson Tale. The dark and moody version of The Snow Queen features the voices of Tommy Kirk and Sandra Dee. Full of beautiful art and wonderful music you will not want to miss Gerda's quest as she searches for her friend Kay who has been kidnapped by the powerful and lonely fairy; The Snow Queen.

DOOR PRIZES, SNACKS, FUN, SPECIAL SURPRISES AND OF COURSE NORMAN THE NUTCRACKER!
