Its a Wonderful Life
Enjoy a night of old-fashioned holiday spirit with Jimmy Stewart in Its a Wonderful Life, the sweetest Christmas flick of all time. Frank Capras 1946 drama chronicles one magical Christmas Eve. Stewart is George Bailey, the last good-hearted banker on the planet. Hes constantly fighting to save his town from the evil capitalist Mr. Potter. (Insert appropriate booing here.) When a big deposit gets lost on Christmas Eve, George feels so despondent he decides the world would be better off without him. It takes a miracle in the form of an angel-in-training named Clarence to convince him otherwise and save the day. (Cue the clapping.) 6:30 p.m. Discovery Green, 1500 McKinney.
