Follow the wintry exploits of Ralphie Parker, who spends most of his time dodging a bully and dreaming of his ideal Christmas gift, a Red Ryder air rifle.

Christmas is approaching and 9 year-old Ralphie wants only one thing: a Red Ryder Range Shot 200 BB gun. When he mentions it at the dinner table, his mother's immediate reaction is that he'll put his eye out. He then decides on a perfect theme for his teacher but her reaction is like his. He fantasizes about what it would be like to be Red Ryder and catch the bad guys. When the big day arrives he gets lots of present under the tree including a lovely gift from his aunt that his mother just adores. But what about the BB gun?

94 min, rated PG. 

Stars Peter Billingsley, Melinda Dillon, Darren McGavin.

Shoot Yer Eye Out

The KiMo Theatre gets in the Christmas mood this weekend with a screening of—what else?—A Christmas Story. This 1983 film, based on the writings of humorist Jean Shepherd, has become a must-watch holiday classic. It tells the story of young Ralphie Parker (Peter Billingsley), who dreams of receiving a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas—much to the displeasure of his parents. Of course, that’s just one incident in this warmly nostalgic look back at family life in ’40s. The film will screen Friday, Dec. 15, starting at 6pm. Admission is free.
