Community Takeover: It's A Wonderful Life (U)

Dir: Frank Capra. USA 1947. 95 mins. Cert U

We are celebrating Christmas with the second event in our brand new Community Takeover strand! Bring your loved ones for a special matinee screening of Christmas masterpiece, It’s A Wonderful Life (1947), as voted by the South Norwood community.

George Bailey never got a chance to fulfill his life's ambitions of exploring the world. As he watches his friends and family become success stories, he gives up his dreams for the good of his town. When a financial error drives him to contemplate ending his life, an angel is sent from Heaven to show him what life would have been like if he had never existed.

The film was suggested by community members Rose Sage-Morrish and Jennifer Bowling:

"The film to me is about support, living life and accepting challenges and struggles head-on, as they will make you a stronger person." - Jennifer

"Watching this Capra Classic has been a family tradition for as long as I can remember. Seeing it on the big screen & sharing this moment with others will be a wonderful gift indeed!" - Rose

Get into the Christmas spirit and arrive early for a special workshop for all ages with Blooming Desires and a visit our very own Santa’s grotto. A licensed bar will be available serving mulled wine, mince pies and other festive treats.
