It’s a Wonderful Life
Miracle Theatre l Friday and Sunday
‘Tis the season for cheer, Christmas trees, festive lights, Christmas carols, parties, presents, sugar over-load, family, friends, fun, warm-fuzzy feelings, and of course It’s a Wonderful Life. If you’ve never seen it, it really is a heartwarming story. IMDb’s synopsis is short but sweet, “An angel helps a compassionate but despairingly frustrated businessman by showing what life would have been like if he never existed.” Along the lines of Home Alone and A Christmas Story, it is a constant classic having been made in 1946! On to the point here, Miracle Theatre in Barracks Row will have two screenings this weekend in addition to other favorites like Elf and Miracle on 34th Street. I’m not seeing National Lampoons Christmas Vacation but we can’t have everything we want for Christmas. You can find ticket info here. It is an awesome movie destined to get you into the holiday spirit.
