Directed by: Frank Capra

Our annual run of the holiday classic — chosen as one of Time Out New York‘s “New York Essentials”! 35mm print
Mary Owen, Donna Reed’s daughter, in person Tue Dec 24 at 4:15 and 7:00pm shows!
Capra’s paean to small-town values and the ordinary guy who does the right thing is a classic story of redemption and second chances, with James Stewart as a man who’s come to the end of his rope one Christmas Eve and Donna Reed as the high-school sweetheart who became his wife. The supporting cast includes Lionel Barrymore, Beulah Bondi, Ward Bond and Gloria Grahame. IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE was the first release from Liberty Films, the pioneering independent label founded by Capra and fellow producer-directors William Wyler and George Stevens, and went on to become not just a perennial holiday favorite, but one of the most beloved of all American movies.
