If You are a Die Hard Fan of "A Christmas Story"

10 replies 2 views Edited Nov 21, 2006
You may or may not have heard about the house in Cleveland which served as the exterior for the film having been bought by a fan and restored to it's movie likeness for touring by the public. He also bought the house across the street to serve as the "A Christmas Story" museum/gift shop.

The Grand Opening is this weekend, and a few of the actors from the movie will be appearing for this at a Cleveland hotel and a local mall. (Apparently not Peter Billingsley though.)

I found the website for this to be very interesting, which includes some pictures of the remodeling progress, and some of the actors (which were taken at last year's fundraiser).

This is my favorite movie.  I wish I lived close enough to go.

If I was heading up to Ohio this year for Thanksgiving than I would have loved to have gone and seen it. There is always next year.

A Christmas Story House
 
 
Maybe it's just me, but I'm, not seeing the resemblence anymore. The siding just killed it.
 
I read the site, but is the inside of the house also from the movie, or is it just the outside?

I like the movie, but I do anything to get out of going to Cleveland.  I hate that city Smiley Tongue
