A Wonderful Life?

The better part of the past hour has been spent looking for local theaters showing “It’s a Wonderful Life.”  I planned to write quick post detailing the theaters, dates and times in an effort to help all see this cherished Capra film this season. Apparently, either my online researching skills have gone to pot, or there is no desire by the masses to see this Christmas staple on the big screen. Only one theater (as far as I can see) is playing this film, The Colonial Theater in Phoenixville.  They will feature It’s a Wonderful Life this Sunday, December 19th at 2:00pm.

I find this disheartening on many levels;

  • Have people lost a sense of nostalgia?
  • What happened to tradition?
  • Doesn’t anyone want to see this on the big screen, feel the warm fuzzies?
  • What about all the people who have never seen it? Imagine experiencing it for the first time in a theater, at the perfect time of year!
  • Worst of all, and perhaps slightly hypocritical, this only showing is during the Eagles game on Sunday……

I was really looking forward to seeing this myself as well as surprising my guy (it’s easily one of his favorites).  I truly expected that we would have multiple places and times to choose from.  Sadly, that is not the case, and being the Eagles fan that I am, football will win out.  That being said, if you know of any other showings in the area, please share!  We do own the DVD, I have actually already seen it this year, but it’s just not the same.  Am I the only person who cares about this, would you go see It’s a Wonderful Life if it was playing near you?
