It's a Wonderful Life

Originally released in 1946, this magical black-and-white Christmas fable is set in snowy, small-town America and is a bittersweet film that will hold the attention of the whole family. This masterpiece from Frank Capra still has a lot to say about community spirit, and is a film with much more to it than feel-good sentimentality. This classic fantasy drama stars James Stewart, Donna Reed, and Lionel Barrymore. The main character, George Bailey, is a small-town businessman who believes he has been a failure. Contemplating suicide, George meets his guardian angel and discovers what life in his hometown of Bedford Falls would have been like had he never lived. The theatre will be decked out in Christmas decor, and we will have a special guest from the North Pole! We will also once again have the pleasure of hosting the Gold Note Chorus who will be singing four part barbershop holiday harmonies that evening, and special guest speaker, Don Eskender! Doors will open at 6:00 PM followed by a holiday pipe organ concert at 6:30 PM Film starts at 7:00 PM *For those interested in an adult beverage, Frank's Place will be open before, during, and after the film!
