Jack Silverman in this week's Scene, tipping you to the coolest Christmas Day event we've heard about in years:
The Belcourt will be serving up a Chinese buffet courtesy of The International Market’s Patty Myint, followed by a film screening of I Love You Phillip Morris. And what screams “Christmas” more than a true tale about a gay con man who goes to ridiculous lengths to provide a happy home for his jailbird beloved? Hey, by Christmas Day, you’re probably so disgusted with It’s a Wonderful Christmas Story on 34th Street that you’re ready to shove that fuzzy red stocking up Blitzen’s wazoo, so this might be just what the savior ordered. $20 for Belcourt members; $25 for non-members. $20 for Belcourt members; $25 for non-members.
The movie is one of the brightest surprises of the holiday season, as Steve Erickson points out in his review. Besides, try getting a Chinese buffet at Little Fockers.
