Christmas Movie Series

The series will conclude on Monday, November 28 with the screening of A Christmas Story, the 1983 family comedy that stars Peter Billingsley as a young boy in the 1940s who attempts to convince his parents, teacher, and even Santa Claus that a Red Ryder range 200-shot BB gun really is the perfect Christmas gift.
