It's a Wonderful Life; showing and discussion with actors

In one of the most inspirational films of all time, James Stewart and Donna Reed find their way through rough times in Bedford Falls (modeled after nearby Seneca Falls, New York) by way of a loving, dedicated relationship and a little heavenly intervention. As Stewart’s and Capra’s first work after their military service, the film takes the postwar malaise often seen in film noir and turns it on its head, constructing a narrative of faith and perseverance.

Special introduction by Karolyn Grimes and Jimmy Hawkins, who portrayed Zuzu and Tommy Bailey in the film. The actors will share behind-the- scenes stories of the making of this beloved classic.

Presented in partnership with the It’s a Wonderful Life Museum in Seneca Falls, New York.
