Hello “A Christmas Story” fans,
2008 marks the 25th anniversary of everyone’s favorite holiday film. A Christmas Story House & Museum is planning its fourth annual event to mark the occasion: “A Christmas Story” 25th Anniversary Celebration & Convention. The convention will feature appearances by seven original cast members, the premiere of three documentaries about the movie, rides in the original movie fire truck, a BB gun range in the back yard of A Christmas Story House, special exhibits of original props used in the movie, and a speakers series featuring members of the original production crew.
The celebration will take place Thanksgiving weekend (Nov. 28-30) at the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel and coincide with Cleveland’s Winterfest. The schedule and details for the events are currently being formulated and will be available on our website in the coming months.
For fans located in the Toronto area who wish to attend the events, a tour bus is being arranged to make the trip to Cleveland. Further details to come.
Also, we’re looking for a corporate sponsor for “A Christmas Story” 25th Anniversary Celebration & Convention. If you know any potential sponsors who may be interested, please contact us.
Although the holidays have passed, we’re keeping busy. We are currently renovating our museum to improve the displays and the overall experience for visitors as well as redesigning our website to feature more content and pictures for fans to enjoy. Remember, we’re open throughout the year, so be sure to visit us any time of the year – either in person at the house or virtually at www.achristmasstoryhouse.com.
A Christmas Story House & Museum is open year-round on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. Tours of the house run every 30 minutes. Regular admission is $7 for adults, $6 for seniors, $5 for children (ages 7-12) and free for children ages 6 and under. For more information, visit www.achristmasstoryhouse.com or call 216-298-4919.
