As a special holiday gift to patrons of the Regent Square Theater, Pittsburgh Filmmakers is offering free admission to the Christmas classic "It's a Wonderful Life" next week.
Show times are 8 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, Dec. 18-21, and 5 and 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 22. Though no admission will be charged, Pittsburgh Filmmakers is asking those who attend to help support the East End Cooperative Ministry’s food drive by bringing a nonperishable or canned good.
Though many families make this 1946 movie, directed by Frank Capra, a part of their holiday, this is a chance to see this Christmas classic on the big screen.
Everyone is familiar with the story of George Bailey, a small town guy with big dreams. George (Jimmy Stewart) spends most of his life helping others, sometimes at the cost of his own happiness. A guardian angel shows George what life in his hometown would've been like if he had never been born.
