Holly Jolly Hollywood Series - "It’s a Wonderful Life"
December 17, 2017 - December 18, 2017
As part of the Holly Jolly Hollywood Series, watch the holiday classic "It's a Wonderful Life" at Columbia's art house theater, the Nickelodeon Theatre.
Recreated, referenced, and parodied countless times over decades of pop culture, It’s a Wonderful Life is a celebration of human generosity and kindness. James Stewart brings the same same wide-eyed good intentions that epitomized his role in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, to tell the story of George Bailey, a man who has lived his life deferring his dreams for the sake of others. A story of love, humor, wit and heartbreak, It’s a Wonderful Life follows George as he marries his sweetheart (the dazzling Donna Reed), advocates for affordable housing and combats the greed of the town’s cruel business leader Mr. Potter. A movie for anyone who likes their Holiday Season with a heavy helping of renewed hope and a sing -a-long ending of “Auld Lang Syne.”
