It's a Wonderful Life

A holiday classic for the whole family! Frank Capra (Arsenic and Old Lace) directs this beloved story of desperate bank manager George Bailey (James Stewart) who contemplates jumping off a bridge on Christmas Eve. Clarence, his bumbling guardian angel, intervenes—showing George the good he has done in the world—and sets him on the right path. Audiences remember this timeless 1946 film mainly for Stewart’s touching performance, but it also features great supporting turns from legendary Hollywood figures such as Lionel Barrymore, Donna Reed, and Gloria Grahame.

Tickets: $9 (members), $14 (nonmembers)

The most well-loved of all Christmas movies.
The epiphany of movie sentiment and a transcendent experience.
As the hero, Mr. Stewart does a warmly appealing job, indicating that he has grown in spiritual stature as well as in talent during the years he was in the war. And Donna Reed is remarkably poised and gracious as his adoring sweet-heart and wife.
What is remarkable about It's a Wonderful Life is how well it holds up over the years; it's one of those ageless movies, like Casablanca or The Third Man, that improves with age.

This film is part of the Retro Revival series.
