This December a classic Christmas comedy comes to the Capitol Theater!
The Capitol Theater brings to their big screen the beloved Christmas comedy A Christmas Story on December 7th at 7:30 PM as part of the Classics at the Capitol Series. Tickets will be only $5.00 and will be available at the door and online.
Released by MGM in 1983, A Christmas Story takes place in 1940s America centered on the hopes and dreams of Ralphie, an average kid who only dreams of one thing for Christmas—a Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot range model air rifle BB gun. Ralphie must survive those endless days leading up to school break, schoolyard bullies, his family, and aunts who send truly bizarre gifts to make it to Christmas morning.
Based upon the works of humorist Jean Shepherd—who served as the film ’s narrator—and directed by Bob Clark, A Christmas Story was released at Thanksgiving 1983 to mostly mixed reviews and a modest performance at the box office. However, thanks to home video and its many appearances on TV, A Christmas Story has become a beloved tradition for many.
A Christmas Story will be introduced by local film writer Andy Ross, “So many people last year would ask me ‘when are you going to show A Christmas Story?’ It would happen time and time again. This is a movie that people consider a part of their own family. I’m thrilled we can bring it to our big screen at the Capitol this holiday season.”
