'A Christmas Story' screens at Riverview Theater this week

For many people, Christmas isn't the same without spending a couple hours in front of the boobtube watching the 80's holiday classic A Christmas Story. Without Ralphie and the rest of the Parkers, this Saturday could be just another December day.

[jump] There are countless holiday movies that no matter how many times you've seen them, Christmas isn't the same until you've watched them again. The 1983 classic A Christmas Story is part of that list for scores people, thanks to Ralphie and his family's shenanigans during his quest for that highly desired Red Ryder BB gun. Complete with a 1940s setting, a rude Santa, school bullies, snowballs to the face, and tongues stuck to metal poles, if you haven't seen A Christmas Story, time's a wasting. 
Thank goodness the Riverview Theater is screening it all week at 4 and 6 p.m. with tickets set at retro prices: $2, or $1 per ticket with a non-perishable food donation. The retro prices are even at the concession stands where popcorn and drinks are only $1 each.

For those of you that have seen it 80 times, what are your favorite moments? The fa-ra-ra-ra sing-along during Christmas dinner at the Chinese restaurant? Or when Ralphie meets with Santa? The infamous leg lamp? Let us know in the comments.
