Hot Docs Holiday Classics: Celebrate the holidays with your favourite seasonal films.
Yes, Bob Clark’s hilarious perennial holiday classic A Christmas Story is back again this year! Poor little Ralphie. Like other nine-year-old children all over the country, all he wants for Christmas is a Red Ryder B.B. gun with a compass and “this thing that tells time.” But his mother, his teacher, not to mention Santa Claus, have other ideas. “You’ll shoot your eye out!” Whether this is your first or 50th time watching, A Christmas Story is great for young and old alike. Join the Parker family for another year of dodging snowballs and smelly hound dogs!
