This is the reel deal. Although some large box theater is showing the same film, their version is digital. CineStudio is showing a 35mm print that is gorgeous. It will be bring a tear to your eye, but you'll feel really good afterwards. #2 on my all time favorite list.
(1946) Directed by Frank Capra. Screenplay: Frances Goodrich, based on Philip Van Doren Stern’s novel. Cast: James Stewart, Donna Reed, Henry Travers, Lionel Barrymore. An Italian immigrant who came to love the U.S. for its generous spirit, populist director Frank Capra remains best known for his holiday film that contrasts the values of community versus individual greed. Sure, you could catch it on TV, but why not celebrate the community we have right here at Cinestudio, where people come together to share the experience of watching great movies on the big screen? James Stewart plays an ordinary small town guy who’s put his own dreams on hold to help others, only to see his optimism eroded by the actions of a privileged few. It takes an angel named Clarence to reveal what Stewart’s world would be like without his sacrifice and commitment. Ranked as the #1 Most Powerful Movie of All Time by the American Film Institute.
