Dial Code Santa ClausBuy Tickets
When Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) is accidentally forgotten when his family leaves on vacation, the precocious 8 year old will have to learn to fend for himself while protecting the homestead from two bumbling burglars nicknamed the Wet Bandits (Daniel Stern & Joe Pesci). The John Hughes mega-blockbuster is packed with holiday hilarity, cartoon violence and a star-making performance by Culkin, making it a childhood classic you can’t wait to watch every year.
“This surprisingly charming film may be the first Christmas black comedy for children.” – Caryn James, The New York Times
“A firstrate production in which every element contributes to the overall smartly realized tone, pic boasts wonderful casting, with Culkin a delight as funny, resilient Kevin, and O’Hara bringing a snappy, zesty energy to the role of mom. Pesci is aces in the role of slippery housebreaker Harry, who does a Two Stooges routine with lanky side-kick Stern.” – Variety

Dial Code Santa Claus
Brand new 35mm print!! The best holiday film you’ve never seen is here and it’s a wildly entertaining blast of ferocious action, fearsome thrills, and French ingenuity. When young Thomas is left home alone with his debilitated grandad on Christmas Eve, he’ll have to battle a bloodthirsty killer dressed as Santa Claus if he’s going to survive the night. Made a year before Home Alone and never before released in the States, Dial Code Santa Claus plays like a batshit crazy grindhouse version of the Macaulay Culkin classic and it truly has to be seen to be believed.
“Just what the hell is Dial Code Santa Claus? It’s a recently rediscovered French film in which a young boy dresses up like Rambo in order to fight a killer Santa Claus. Really, that should be all you need to know to sell you on this movie” – Chris Evangelista, Slash Film
“Beautifully shot and crazed enough to keep you on your toes, this is a film that’d have a bigger cult following if more viewers actually had the chance to see it.” – Nathaniel Thompson, Mondo Digital
“It’s dark and violent, like all the best fairy tales, and deserves a place in the growing pantheon of alternative holiday movies for those who prefer more of an edge to their Christmas fare.” – Jennifer Ouellette, Ars Technica
