Christmas. The holiday’s current incarnation — in American pop culture, anyway — inspires in some of us as much dread as it does excitement. It’s all about money and shopping, getting deals and worrying that our best gifting efforts will disappoint. The Industrial Workers of the World host What Would Jesus Buy? Monday at Cozmic, the film that follows performance artist and activist Bill Talen as he preaches against overconsumption during the holiday season. What Would Jesus Buy? screens 7pm Monday, Dec. 19

at Cozmic. FREE.
