Wizards, Nightmares, & Wonderful Lives

The Aero Theatre in Santa Monica has a handful of genre titles lined up for December. Needless to say, a couple of them are Christmas fantasies (NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE), but there are also some non-seasonal entries, including one R-rated horror film (ANGEL HEART).
