On Saturday December 10th, 2016, a special screening of A Christmas Story happened at Toronto’s historic Revue Cinema. This classic movie was filmed here in Toronto in 1983, and is centred around a young boy in the 1940s named Ralphie and his seemingly fruitless attempts to convince his parents, his teacher, and Santa that a Red Ryder B.B. gun really is the perfect Christmas gift.
Attendees brought an unused, unwrapped toy as donations to TOY MOUNTAIN – a special charity partnership between CTV Toronto and The Salvation Army.
A SPECIAL GUEST from the original cast was in attendance for a Q&A: Tedde Moore, who played the Genie-nominated Miss Shields! We were honoured to have Tedde as a part of the event.
