It's A Wonderful Life - 1946
This is part of Regency’s Classic Film series. This is the only time and place for this event. The movie starts at 7:30, but we meet earlier to give us time to purchase tickets/concessions and head to our seats. Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ewe4lg8zTYA It's a Wonderful Life is a 1946 American Christmas fantasy comedy-drama film produced and directed by Frank Capra, based on the short story and booklet The Greatest Gift, which Philip Van Doren Stern wrote in 1939 and published privately in 1945. The film stars James Stewart as George Bailey, a man who has given up his dreams in order to help others, and whose imminent suicide on Christmas Eve brings about the intervention of his guardian angel, Clarence Odbody (Henry Travers). Clarence shows George all the lives he has touched and how different life in his community of Bedford Falls would be if he had never been born. It's a Wonderful Life is considered one of the most critically acclaimed films ever made. It was nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Picture and has been recognized by the American Film Institute as one of the 100 best American films ever made, placing number 11 on its initial 1998 greatest movie list, number 20 on its revised 2007 greatest movie list and placing number one on its list of the most inspirational American films of all time. Capra revealed that this was his personal favorite among the films he directed and that he screened it for his family every Christmas season.

    What we're about

    Do you like classic films? Do black & white movies intrigue you? Enjoy watching genre-making flicks? No matter your story or preferences, you're with friends in our group! We will view movies from the 1930's through 80's and we try to meet about once a month. We try to make it a mix of classics being shown on the big screen and options in a private location. Let's get to know each other as we remember watching these movies again as if for the first time.
