It's a Wonderful Life screening (2019-Dec-12 @ 7:30 p.m.)

Thursday, December 12 @ 19:3021:40

The Dryden will screen It's a Wonderful Life (Frank Capra, U.S. 1946, 130 min., 35mm) with an introduction by actors Karolyn Grimes and Jimmy Hawkins (Zuzu and Tommy Bailey) as part of the Holidays, Canon series.

James Stewart and Donna Reed find their way through rough times in Bedford Falls (modeled on nearby Seneca Falls, New York) by way of a loving, dedicated relationship and a little heavenly intervention. As Stewart's and Capra's first work after their military service, the film takes the postwar malaise often seen in film noir and turns it on its head, constructing a narrative of faith and perseverance.
