Now that Christmas has come and gone for another year, Santa Claus has flown back to the North Pole on his reindeer-powered sleigh and is kicking back with Mrs. Claus and all the elfs in front of a roaring fire, enjoying a bit of down time before starting work on preparations for Christmas 2015, right?

The film screens at the RPL Theatre Tuesday, Dec. 30 at 7 p.m. Admission is free with a donation to the Regina Food Bank. And to get everyone primed, here’s the trailer:
