CLEVELAND — A Christmas Story House and Museum has named Pearl of the Orient as its official Chinese restaurant.
Museum visitors can get a coupon good for a discount on their meal at Pearl of the Orient.
In “A Christmas Story,” the classic 1983 movie that was partly shot in Cleveland, the Parker family enjoys roast duck at a Chinese restaurant after a pack of dogs lays waste to their turkey.
The movie, based on stories by Jean Shepherd, follows the trials and tribulations of 9-year-old Ralphie Parker, who desperately wants a BB gun for Christmas.
Pearl of the Orient, with locations in Shaker Heights and Rocky River, is a sponsor of “A Christmas Story” 25th Anniversary Celebration and Convention. The event, planned for Friday, Nov. 28, and Saturday, Nov. 29, offers activities and a reunion of actors from the movie.
The museum’s previous official restaurant, C&Y Chinese Restaurant, closed this year.�
