Widely regarded as one of the greatest Christmas films ever made It’s A Wonderful Life will be screened twice at Pocklington Arts Centre (PAC) for one day only this festive season – and PAC has got an extra special festive treat lined up!
The classic black and white film, directed by Frank Capra and starring James Stewart, has become a firm festive family favourite.
It tells the tale of George Bailey (James Stewart) who beset with personal and professional problems finds his previously happy life falling apart around him on Christmas Eve.
Seeing no way out, he considers ending his life from the edge of a bridge, but Clarence (Henry Travers), his guardian angel, intervenes and shows George what his beloved hometown of Bedford Falls would be like without him.
It’s A Wonderful Life has undergone a 4K restoration and will be screened at PAC on Thursday 13 December at 1pm and 7.30pm.
Tickets for the afternoon showing are a special price of £5 each, including free tea, coffee and mince pie.
The evening screening, at the normal ticket price of £7.20 per adult or £6.20 for concessions, will give cinemagoers the chance to enjoy a glass of sherry, a mince pie and live entertainment from members of PAC’s Forgotten Voices Choir in the bar before the film.
PAC director, Janet Farmer, said: “Screening It’s A Wonderful Life and treating our audiences to a festive tipple and a mince pie has become a favourite event in PAC’s calendar and is the perfect way to get into the festive spirit.
“We hope you can join us for what is always a really popular event full of Christmas cheer”.
