Ralphie's coming back to Cleveland, just ahead of the Christmas season.
Peter Billingsley, who plays Ralphie in A Christmas Story, will be coming to Cleveland to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the iconic holiday film, which was filmed in the city in '80s. (You've probably heard that we host the iconic Christmas Story house, right?)
The festive event "Behind the Camera: Ralphie Comes Home," hosted by the Greater Cleveland Film Commission, is set to take place Nov. 10-12 in Cleveland's Public Auditorium.
On Friday, Nov. 10, a cast expo will take place 1:30 p.m.-6 p.m. at Public Auditorium, with a behind-the-camera panel at 7 p.m. in the adjacent Music Hall. The cast expo will continue Nov. 11-12, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
Expect Billingsley to be in the cast expo, along with other principal cast members who will be announced later. Stars will be available for photos, autographs and plenty of storytelling. Limited-edition merchandise will be on sale, too — and a Cleveland Film location tour will be hosted by the Cleveland Funny Bus (a 2023 Best of Cleveland pick!).
General admission tickets, $20 for adults, are available — with VIP upgrades available, too. Proceeds will benefit GCFC.
