A Christmas Story

It’s rare for a director to give us one acknowledged Christmas classic and a downright miracle for making two, polar opposite Yuletide masterpieces. In addition to our annual holiday grindhouse showing of Black Christmas, we’re celebrating Bob Clark’s beloved family favorite A Christmas Story! As 9 year old Ralphie (Peter Billingsley) pines for a Red Ryder B.B. gun to appear as the perfect gift under the tree, his parents, teacher and even the department store Santa all warn: “You’ll shoot your eye out.”

“There is a real knowledge of human nature beneath the comedy. 4 stars.” – Roger Ebert
