This holiday season, you could choose to sit around a fireplace listening to Jingle Bells (or perhaps, Jingle Cats?) with your family.  But for us at Blue Sunshine, Christmas is a time of raucous endangerment and bad memories, and with that in mind, we’re happy to present a slew of movies that have nothing to do with the holidays, but plenty to do with getting high and getting drunk.  So come and experience our High for the Holidays film series at Blue Sunshine - on 16mm!

Blue Sunshine comprend que la saison des fêtes est une période où tout le monde devrait se sentir apprécié et aimé. Seulement, les réunions de familles sont des lieux propices aux domaines de la souffrance, des beuveries et des coups bas. Alors pourquoi ne pas le faire ouvertement avec nous!  Blue Sunshine est fier et de vous présenter sa série 'High for the Holidays'; une pléthore de 'quoi, qu'est-ce qui vient de se passer’, projetée au grande écran en 16mm!
