1210 “You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out:” Prelude to A Christmas Story
Friday, 10-11:30am, December 11

Instructor: Martha Powers
Ever since its release in 1983, the classic comedy film “A Christmas Story” has been an annual celebration of the holidays. Traditionally, it is screened 12 consecutive times on TBS and TNT, starting at 8 PM (TBS) and 9 PM (TNT) on Christmas Eve. Based upon anecdotes written by Jean Shepherd about his childhood in Cleveland’s west side in the 1940s, the movie recalls a young boy’s yearning for a Red Ryder air rifle, his visit to a department store Santa Claus,  and the fate of the family’s turkey dinner. If you’d like to learn more about this movie before it airs this year, then join us for a pre-view class that promises to be peppered with fun facts. I triple-dog dare you!
Spoiler Alert! If you’ve never seen this movie, or it’s been a long time, you may want to view it and then watch the recorded version of this class.
