Seating is limited to theater capacity (500). First come, first-serve basis and not guaranteed seating. Doors to the movie theater will open at 9:30 a.m.
There will be a holiday concert after the movie with St. Lucy’s Christmas Band in the plaza behind Vroman’s Bookstore.
About A Christmas Story
Set in Indiana during the 1940’s, Peter Billingsley stars as nine-year-old Ralphie who has only one thing on his Christmas list: a Red Ryder Carbine-Action 200-Shot Air Rifle. With his parents unwilling to buy him the gun because he might “shoot his eye out,” Ralphie decides to mount a full-scale, hint dropping, Santa-begging campaign.
Directed by: Bob Clark
Originally screened in 1983
Running time: 94 minutes
