First premiering in 1983, the film remains an integral part of holiday festivities to this day. Heralded as “maybe the best Christmas movie ever” by The New York Times, A Christmas Story, a nostalgic view of Christmastime in Indiana during the 1940s, stars Peter Billingsley as Ralphie, a nine-year-old who has only one thing on his Christmas list: a Red Ryder Carbine-Action 200-Shot Air Rifle. With his parents unwilling to buy him the present, Ralphie decides to mount a full-scale, hint-dropping, Santa-begging campaign.
With its memorable cast of characters and iconic imagery, A Christmas Story presents many exciting creative options for lotteries. Pollard Banknote’s Licensed Products team will offer a full turnkey program that includes the design, programming, and printing of themed tickets, as well as various options such as second chance draws, a POS program, and broadcast and digital marketing.
