Nitehawk Cinema FILM FEASTS Presents:

In this holiday classic, all little Ralphie wants for Christmas is a Red Ryder B.B. gun but will he shoot his eye out?

For Nitehawk’s December FILM FEASTS event we present everybody’s favorite holiday movie, Bob Clark’s A Christmas Story. This screening will include select delicious beverages paired with a food menu inspired by the film. The best part? You’ll be served each course during the specific moments that inspired the film so you can experience edible sensations while watching the action unfold on-screen!

While Bob Clark holds a special place in our dark hearts for his inventive horror flicks like the scary treat Black Christmas, it’s his contribution to the American canon of holiday classics with A Christmas Story that solidifies him as one of our favorite directors. Quirky family dynamics, a leg lamp, a bunny suit, bullying, swear words and anorexia are all involved in one boy’s quest for a Red Ryder B.B. gun in the 1940s. With such sincerity and deep humor, make a switch from watching this on television this year and see it on the big screen with your Nitehawk family!
