Suit up and grab your leg lamp -- Mesa's Royale and Nile theaters are pairing up to host a special holiday screening of A Christmas Story inside The Nile. 

On Thursday, December 22, escape the holiday party, bring the kids (and maybe some ear muffs, a few lawn chairs and blankets) and camp out for the show in front of the big screen.

A Christmas Story, 

directed by Bob Clark and written by Jean Shepherd (based on the novel "In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash"), was billed as "

A tribute to the Original, Traditional, One-Hundred-Percent, Red-Blooded, Two-Fisted, All-American Christmas


The 90-minute film stars a young Ralphie (played by Peter Billingsley), who grows up in Indiana in the 1940s and only dreams of owning a Red Rider BB gun, despite the warnings and refusals of his mother, school teachers -- even Santa Claus. 

Hot cocoa and cookies will be provided and all guests will have the chance to take a free holiday photo.

Tickets are $5 and can be purchased online or at Lo Fi Coffee and The Nile.
