Athlone audiences are in for a festive treat as Athlone Film Club bring Frank Capra’s unmissable classic, It’s a Wonderful Life to the big screen in the Dean Crowe Theatre on Tuesday December 10 at 8pm.
This moving and beautifully told film is a true masterpiece of cinema. A tale of rivalry and despair at the age of 30, the story finds George Bailey in turmoil, having been framed by his arch rival and torn between his own desires and aspirations, but struggling to always do the right thing. This inner conflict proves too much for Bailey, who sees drastic measures as the only option. In classic Hollywood style, Heaven sends a guardian angel to remind him how worthwhile his life has been and to treasure the good times when the going gets tough.
What better way to get into the Christmas spirit. Meet in the theatre bar from 7.30pm for some mince pies and wine preceding the film.
