Film archivist Steven Mayerson will show holiday-themed, eclectic cartoons and shorts at the Bad Film Society meeting at 6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 18, at the Elks Lodge, 255 E. Main St. Following the shorts will be presentations of the 1958 monster film “War of the Colossal Beast” and the campy 1935 serial film “The Lost City.” Attendees are encouraged to bring a “badly wrapped bad gift” for a “bad holiday gift swap,” and members also are encouraged to bring food for the potluck dinner before the feature. Suggested donation is $4. See www.badfilmsociety.org.
