Come check out the family holiday classic, one of a handful of films worth viewing annually. You won’t want to miss it on the big screen at Gorton!
In the 1940s, a young boy named Ralphie Parker attempts to convince his parents, teacher, and Santa Claus that a Red Ryder Range 200 Shot BB gun really is the perfect Christmas gift.
Based on the humorous writings of author Jean Shepherd, this beloved holiday movie follows the wintry exploits of youngster Ralphie Parker (Peter Billingsley), who spends most of his time dodging a bully (Zack Ward) and dreaming of his ideal Christmas gift, a “Red Ryder air rifle.” Frequently at odds with his cranky dad (Darren McGavin) but comforted by his doting mother (Melinda Dillon), Ralphie struggles to make it to Christmas Day with his glasses and his hopes intact.
Written by Jean Shepherd (based on the novel “In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash”), Leigh Brown (screenplay), Bob Clark (screenplay) and directed by Bob Clark. Starring Peter Billingsley, Melinda Dillon, and Darren McGavin.
