35mmShortsNaughtyHere’s one way Santa will know who was naughty or nice: by finding out who went to Nitehawk’s Naughty 35MM Shorts vs. who went to their Nice ones.

This Friday and Saturday at noon, catch some retro cartoons and obscure holiday clips with Jack Theakson, 35mm film archivist and historian. Watch children-friendly shorts plus a rare 1948 Technicolor print of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, while you brunch for this nice “Holiday 35MM Fun Show.”

Then return at midnight when Theakson presents naughty clips from his massive 35 mm collection. See “Nude in a White Car” (you can figure out the premise), “Love For Sale” (featuring 1950s burlesque strippers both on and off stage), and “Violated” (clips featuring NYC weirdos and derelicts on the streets and in the clubs of NYC).

Here’s what else we’re Reel psyched about this Christmas week!
