Event Description:

A Christmas Story is a 1983 film based on the book In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash, the memoirs of humorist Jean Shepherd. Set in Indiana in the 1940s, the story revolves around nine-year-old Ralphie Parker, who wants only one thing for Christmas: a Red Ryder Carbine Action 200-shot Range Model air rifle. Ralphie's desire is rejected by his mother, his teacher Miss Shields, and even a department store Santa Claus, all giving him the same warning: "You'll shoot your eye out."  Peter Billingsley stars as Ralphie Parker, Melinda Dillon as Mrs. Parker, and Darren McGavin as Mr. Parker (The Old Man).
