Description

Sponsored by ModSock, located down the street from the Limelight. So many socks you'll puke. Third Eye Cinema is a staff and volunteer-curated film series of all of our favorite flicks -- the cult classics, the ones you might have missed, the ones you need to revisit. This month's movie chosen by our projectionist Jen! It's Christmas Eve in northern Finland, and an archeological dig has just unearthed the real Santa Claus. But this particular Santa isn't the one you want coming to town. When the local children begin mysteriously disappearing, young Pietari and his father capture the mythological being and attempt to sell Santa to the misguided leader of the multinational corporation behind the dig. Santa's elves, however, will stop at nothing to free their fearless leader from captivity. Rare Exports is a re-imagining of the most classic of all childhood fantasies, and is a darkly comic gem soon to be required perennial holiday viewing.
