A Christmas classic is making a big comeback for its 75th anniversary.
According to a report from The Daily Wire, Frank Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life will be returning to theaters this holiday season courtesy of Fathom Events; the movie will play for two days only —December 18 and again on December 21.
“Embraced as a cherished holiday tradition by families around the world, Frank Capra’s heart-warming masterpiece now celebrates 75 years with this big-screen event,” a description on the movie site read.
“George Bailey (James Stewart) sets aside his dreams of world travel to run his father’s small community bank, and protect the people of Bedford Falls from greedy businessman Mr. Potter (Lionel Barrymore),” it added. “When a costly mistake pushes George to the brink of despair, a visit from a kindly angel (Henry Travers) will show George how the life of one good man can change the world forever.”
From The Daily Wire:
The film originally opened in theaters in the United States on January 7, 1947, according to IMDb. Despite its popularity over the years, the movie was not a box-office success when it came out. The themes of the film dealt with dark subjects like suicide and greed, but also love and faith. As one writer noted, the fact this movie has grown in success over the years says a lot about how our culture has changed.
