It’s time to engage in the December debate over which is the best holiday film ever produced. “It’s a Wonderful Life” is arguably first on almost every list. Directed by Frank Capra and released in 1946, James Stewart stars as George Bailey, an ambitious young man who delays his every dream of travel, adventure and the world beyond small-town Bedford Falls to help his family and community.
We won’t reveal more for newcomers to this classic film, but we’ll share that it has become a family tradition to watch together at the holiday season. Capra revealed that it was his favorite among the films he directed and that he screened it for his own family every Christmas season. Join us to watch on the big-screen and start (or continue) your own friendly debate.
“It’s a Wonderful Life” was nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and has been recognized by the American Film Institute as one of the 100 best American films ever made.
