CLEVELAND (AP) - Cleveland's casino will mark the 30th anniversary of the movie "A Christmas Story," parts of which were filmed in the department store that now houses the casino.
The Horseshoe Casino Cleveland opened last year in the old Higbee building downtown. It says the movie will be highlighted throughout the casino during the season.
The Higbee building and its holiday-decorated windows had a starring role in the 1983 film. This year, the casino will re-create the nostalgic animatronic holiday scenes that adorned the store's street-level windows back in the day.
Cleveland also is home to "A Christmas Story" House and Museum. That's the house where hero Ralphie Parker lived in movie. The museum also is planning 30th anniversary events.
