Frank Capra’s timeless holiday classic film, “It’s a Wonderful Life” will once again bring the beloved characters of Bedford Falls to the silver screen as part of the Appalachian Theatre Cinema Classics Series at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, December 10 and 11. A modest film that became a Christmas tradition for many, the message in this film is one of courage and sacrifice as George Bailey, a man with big ideas about seeing the world, continually sets aside his own dreams to do the right thing for the town. In so doing, Bailey becomes “the richest man in town” when he learns we are all inextricably linked to each other and play an
important part in the fabric of one another’s lives. This film is number eleven on the American Film Institute’s list of best films of the century. “It’s a Wonderful Life” has proven to be an enduring classic that continues to be loved by generation after generation.
