Not since the Rumble in the Jungle has there been a battle royale to compare to the smackdown on display in the cinematic seasonal slugfest, Santa Vs. The Snowman
. In this computer animated film, Santa has no choice but to show his claws and deliver some serious season's beatings when his frosty foe makes a move to claim the title of the holiday's top gift-giver. Ben Stein voices Spunky the Elf, while Jonathan Winters lends his talents to Santa, whose 50-foot tall nutcracker toy soldier will tower overhead on the St. Louis Science Center's massive OMNIMAX screen (5050 Oakland Avenue; 314-289-4424 or www.slsc.org
). Santa vs. the Snowman
screens daily through Saturday, December 31 (the Science Center is closed on Christmas Day), and tickets are $8 to $9.
