A Very Merry Movie Night! @ Somerville Public Library
Thursday, December 19, 7:00pm – 8:30pm
@ Somerville Public Library (89 Highland Ave)
Join us and our friends from the Somerville Media Center for hot cocoa, treats, and a showing of the 1983 American comedy “A Christmas Story,” directed by Bob Clark.
About the movie: Ralphie Parker, now grown up, reminisces on one particular Christmas when he was nine years old and wanted only one thing for that Christmas: a Red Ryder Carbine Action 200-shot Range Model air rifle. Ralphie’s desire is rejected by his mother, his teacher Miss Shields, and even a Santa Claus at Higbee’s department store, all giving him the same warning: “You’ll shoot your eye out.” Hilarity ensues in a series of vignettes leading up to Christmas morning. Will Ralphie get the Christmas present of his dreams?
