It's A Wonderful Life

United States, 1946, 131mins, Cert.U

Film description

It’s A Wonderful Life is without a doubt one of the most popular and enduring films ever made and an annual fixture here at the Picture House. For the uninitiated, the film opens with angels discussing George Bailey, a man so beset with problems that he loses sight of the true impact his life has had on those around him.

In these moments of uncertainty It's A Wonderful Life contains a darkness which makes the sweetness and genuine optimism at the heart of Capra's classic all the more touching and believable. Ultimately this festive favourite is a reminder of the power and wonder of compassion and kindness, what more could we ask for?


UPDATE: Please note both our Christmas Eve screening and the BYOBaby screening (Wednesday 19th December) of It's A Wonderful Life are now sold out. Advance booking is advisable for all other screenings.
