If none of the endless opportunities to see It’s a Wonderful Life on TV or the big screen appeal to you but you’re still in a semi-festive mood, perhaps the Egyptian’s Ho Ho Hell! double feature of Silent Night, Deadly Night (at 7:30 p.m. on 35mm) and Christmas Evil (9 p.m. in a new 4K restoration) will be more to your liking. Silent Night was hugely controversial upon its initial release, while no less an authority on the outré and transgressive than John Waters has singled out Christmas Evil as the greatest Christmas movie ever made.
