Can’t deal with the holidays? Make fun of them!

The good people at the Mid Century Modern League are presenting “Charles Phoenix’s Retro Holiday Slide Show” next month.

From the press release:

Pop Culture Humorist and Author Charles Phoenix brings his live holiday slide show performance to The Hollywood Theater one night only, December 29. In this hilarious Holiday show you’ll see how Americans decorated, dressed up, dined, and drank to celebrate- New Years, Easter, 4th of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas in the 50s and 60s.

The show is also a benefit for the restoration of the Crown Motel Sign that the MCM League rescued from the wrecking ball last year. It’s in storage in Arciform’s basement, where the group is slowly chipping away at cleaning it up and restoring it, while trying to raise the funds to do it.

Here are the performance details:

Tuesday, December 29 – 7:00 PM
The Hollywood Theater – 4122 NE Sandy Boulevard

Tickets are $15 and are available  The Hollywood Theater box office– 4122 NE Sandy Boulevard or online.
