Join the Bristol Public Library on Tuesday, December 11, for a free movie showing of A Christmas Story at 6:00 p.m. Popcorn and water will be served, and we might even have a surprise in store for our movie attendees!

Based on the writings of and narrated by author Jean Shepherd, A Christmas Story follows Ralphie Parker (Peter Billingsley) as he deals with school, bullies, snow, his little brother, and dreams of one day getting a Red Ryder BB gun. Frequently at odds with his cranky dad (Darren McGavin) but comforted by his doting mother (Melinda Dillon), Ralphie struggles to make it to Christmas Day with his hopes of finding a Red Ryder BB gun under the tree — and his glasses — intact.

Rated PG; 94 minutes.
