It's A Wonderful Life

Tues. 12/19 - Sun. 12/24

(PG-1946) 2 Hrs. 10 Min. (DVD) In English

Now see Frank Capra's five-time Oscar nominated film It's A Wonderful Life on the Big Screen! The beloved story is about George Bailey (James Stewart), an affable man who's never turned his back on a friend in need, and yet he's a terrible pessimist who believes his family, and the townspeople of Bedford Falls, would be better off without him. When Angel Second Class Clarence (Henry Travers) shows him what Bedford Falls would be like had he had never been born, George sees the error of his ways, and Clarence earns his wings. Although the film wasn't a box office success upon its release in 1946, it went on to become a Christmas tradition and why not? It's A Wonderful Life is, above all,  a moving and profound cinematic experience where prayer coupled with karma leads to a joyously happy ending and where, for just a moment, we catch a hint of the divine. Even an angel without his wings will tell you that's a rarity. Also starring Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore and Thomas Mitchell.
