This event has passed.

Join us for our annual holiday party and BETTER WATCH OUT, a Christmas horror-thriler from Chris Peckover! Olivia DeJonge plays Ashley, the teenage babysitter during a home invasion. But this masked madman isn't as anonymous as she thinks. Triggers: kidnapping, sexual assault (groping a bound woman), stalking and abuse.

If HOME ALONE were a horror film, it might be this one. Come for the holiday happy hour and film, stay for the community conversation afterward.

Doors open at 6:30 and opening talk and film starts at 7:00
