In this classic 1946 film, George Bailey has always wanted to leave Bedford Falls to see the world, but circumstances and his own good heart have led him to stay. He sacrificed his education for his brother’s, kept the family-run savings and loan business afloat, protected the town from the greed of the banker, Mr. Potter, and married his childhood sweetheart. As this compassionate but despairingly frustrated small-town man contemplates suicide one fateful Christmas Eve, his guardian angel intercedes and shows him what life would have been like for the residents of Bedford Falls is he had never lived.

The Strand continues its tradition of playing It’s a Wonderful Life on the big screen all day on the Thursday before Christmas. Fuzzy pajamas are encouraged and popcorn and drinks will be served. Get there 15 minutes before showtime for a holiday preshow and sing-along on the Mighty Allen Theatre Organ.
