Please, Don't Shoot Your Eye Out

Filled with the same family traditions year after year, we know every holiday season comes with its highs and lows, and, sadly, they often overlap. If your annual viewing of A Christmas Story (the high) is usually ruined by screaming relatives and the smell of burnt turkey (oh, so low), we’re here to offer you a reprieve. Before you get trapped in familial hell with nary a leg lamp in sight, you can head over to the Cliff and see everyone’s favorite Christmas movie in awesome 35mm. Aunt Clara’s pink bunny pajamas are always welcome, but leave your Red Ryder BB gun at home if you want to join your real family at the Texas Theatre, 231 W. Jefferson Blvd. Screenings start Thursday. Tickets are $9.50, with discount tickets available for members, students, seniors and bike riders. Call 214-948-1546 or visit for showtimes.
