Movies at the Museum: Santa Claus Conquers the Martians

Join the Holland Museum for a night of sci-fi laughs as Santa Claus brings Christmas fun to Mars in this 1964 film. Regularly appearing on lists of the worst films ever made, Santa Claus Conquers the Martians showcases the far-reaching impact that the Space Age and Mars mania had on American culture in the 1960s. Since its release and subpar critical reception, the film was spoofed multiple times and has become a holiday cult classic.
