An angel is sent from Heaven to help a desperately frustrated businessman by showing him what life would have been like if he had never existed.

George Bailey (James Stewart) has so many problems he is thinking about ending it all – and it’s Christmas! As the angels discuss George, we see his life in flashback. As George is about to jump from a bridge, he ends up rescuing his guardian angel, Clarence – who then shows George what his town would have looked like if it hadn’t been for all his good deeds over the years.

Join us at BrewCinema and get in to the Christmas spirit by reliving this festive classic on the big screen.

“It’s a Wonderful Life is a wonderful title for a motion picture about which practically everyone who sees it will agree that it’s wonderful entertainment.”
Hollywood Reporter

“A genuine American classic.”
The Guardian



The set for Bedford Falls was constructed in two months and was one of the longest sets that had ever been made for an American movie. It covered four acres of RKO’s Encino Ranch. It included 75 stores and buildings, a main street, a factory district and a large residential and slum area. Main Street was 300 yards long–three whole city blocks.
