Stewart wishes he had never been born, but Travers shows him what a hell-hole his home town would have been without him. The film was nominated for five Oscars.

Picture has proprietor Charles Morris said: "We have a lot to offer this year,” said the Picture House’s proprietor Charles Morris.

“We have a new, proper family film for the holidays and Christmas wouldn’t be complete without ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’, which is guaranteed to put even the most cynical person in a good mood.

“We will be offering free mince pies at this show, while stocks last! We are selling tickets online for all these films.”
