Stressful holiday shopping? Need a glass of vino? Can’t spend another night wrapping gifts and watching reruns of Friends? The Foundry Bar and SALA Boutique will be open December 8 to 14, every night free, with different fun activities every night, drinks, gifts, snacks, good music and friends.

Tonight the Foundry will screen Santa Claus vs. The Devil, a 1959 Mexican fantasy film directed by Rene Cardona and co-written with Adolfo Torres Portillo.

In the film, Santa Claus works in outer space and battles with a demon named Pitch, sent to Earth by Lucifer to ruin Christmas by killing Santa. The film runs 97 minutes. Dubbed in English (to make it even more fun.)

Reviews

“I couldn’t help feeling as I watched it that it must have a strong cult following somewhere simply because it’s so…strange.”
-John J. Puccio /Movie Metropolis

“This one definitely falls into the so-bad-it’s-kinda-awesome camp.”
-Matt Brunson/Film Frenzy

“Ho Ho Horrible!”
-Phil Hall/Film Threat

Bar and SALA Boutique will open at 5:30 p.m., and the film begins at 7. This event is indoors.

Get tickets »

Parking is limited at the venue, the Foundry says, so please use the three public parking lots in Town. One is across from the Post Office, one is behind Berkshire Bank and the other is just off Main Street. They are clearly marked. Do not park at Trúc Orient Express Restaurant or the Post Office or you might receive a ticket.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
