A Christmas Story

Mon. 12/18 - Fri. 12/22

(PG-1983) 1 Hr. 33 Min. (Blu-ray) In English

Both warmly nostalgic and darkly humorous, A Christmas Story deserves its status as a holiday perennial so we're bringing it back to the Big Screen where it's seldom seen! In the 1940s, in the town of Hammond, 9-year-old Ralphie wants one thing for Christmas -- an official Red Ryder BB rifle. When he asks his mother for the BB gun, she says, "No, you'll shoot your eye out." When he writes an essay about it at school, his teacher says the same thing. And then Santa concurs, "You'll shoot your eye out, kid." Ralphie fears that he'll never get the BB gun for Christmas. But there may be a surprise in store for him. Starring Peter Billingsley as Ralphie Parker, Ian Petrella as his brother, Randy, and Melinda Dillon and Darren McGavin as his mom and dad.

(PG-13~1989) 1 Hr. 37 Min.

As the holidays approach, Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) wants to have a perfect family Christmas, so he pesters his wife, Ellen (Beverly D'Angelo), and children, as he tries to make sure everything is in line, including the tree and house decorations. However, things go awry quickly. His hick cousin, Eddie (Randy Quaid), and his family show up unplanned and start living in their camper on the Griswold property. Even worse, Clark's employers renege on the holiday bonus he needs.
