COSHOCTON -- A bit of iconic Christmas movie history has just arrived at Unusual Junction in Coshocton County from the classic movie, "A Christmas Story."
"We are very excited that we have acquired a piece of pop culture history!" said Bob McKenna, owner of Lava Rock Grill and Unusual Junction. "We now have the Santa Claus and his list which was used in the 1983 classic movie, "A Christmas Story." This Santa can be seen in the movie about two minutes and 40 seconds into the opening credits where you seen him in the front window of the Higbees Department Store in downtown Cleveland. This mechanical movie prop has been hidden away since the 1980s and we are proud to have it here now."
This is just the latest in a long line of other entertainment memorabilia on display at Lava Rock Grill and Unusual Junction, which also includes numerous record album covers, antiques, collectibles, board games of the past, and the original Price is Right sign which is signed by Bob Barker. Stop in to see the mechanical Santa used in The Christmas Story movie during Unusual Junction's regular hours -- open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
