Our annual Christmas Eve family delight is back and this year we’re hosting an 11am and a 3.30pm screening of Frank Capra’s 1946 classic starring James Stewart.
Frank Capra | 1946 | USA | 130 mins
Cast: James Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore, Henry Travers
Oscar-winning director Frank Capra’s (It Happened One Night) masterpiece, the profoundly charming It’s a Wonderful Life stars Jimmy Stewart (Rear Window) as everyman George Bailey, whose youthful dreams have been overwhelmed by responsibilities to his community; down on his luck and on the brink of suicide on Christmas Eve when a guardian angel (Henry Travers) arrives to show him how the sleepy town of Bedford Falls would have ended up if he’d never existed. Set on Christmas Eve, this profoundly touching reverse-Scrooge fable is a seasonal classic.
*“Capra’s Dickensian masterpiece […] A genuine American classic”*_ ***** Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
