It's a Wonderful Life

It's a Wonderful Life

On December 15th, ODEON cinemas will be showing matineee and evening screenings of Christmas classic, 'It's a Wonderful Life'

Often cited as one of the best-loved films ever made, It's a Wonderful Life still has as much of a hold on the emotional heartstrings as ever and is a joy to see up on the big screen. Fantasy, philosophy, and much heart-warming chronicling of the every-day lives of every-day people are foremost in Capra's tale about a man who gets the chance to see what the world would have been like without him.

'It's a Wonderful Life' will be shown at select ODEON cinemas in the UK and Ireland.  Find the cinema near you where you can enjoy the ultimate Christmas classic on the big screen.
