One-time-only! We have combined our popular First Fridays at the Museum program with our Holiday Season Celebration. You are invited to the Avalon Casino Theatre for the rare opportunity to experience A Christmas Story on the big screen. Set in the 1940s, the film follows nine-year-old Ralphie Parker who desperately wants a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas. Much to his dismay, his pleas are rejected by his mother, his teacher and even a department store Santa Claus, all giving him the same warning: “You’ll shoot your eye out.” As Christmas Day approaches, Ralphie does his best to keep his hopes up.
Prior to the film screening join us for holiday music, a visit from Santa for photos ops, A Christmas Story-themed appetizer, holiday cheer and our Holiday Season Celebration raffle.
The movie will begin at 5:30 pm. Each ticket includes one entry in the raffle, appetizer and a gift from Santa. Wine, beer and movie concessions will be available for purchase. Prizes include the iconic ‘leg lamp’ from the movie plus other fun items. Additional raffle tickets may be purchased.
