It’s A Wonderful LifeU

Directed by Frank Capra | USA | 1946 | 2h 10m | Starring James Stewart, Donna Reed, Henry Travers

The ultimate Christmas classic. Beset with personal and professional problems, George Bailey finds his previously happy life falling apart around him on Christmas Eve. Seeing no way out, George considers jumping from the edge of a bridge – but Clarence, his guardian angel, intervenes and shows George what his beloved hometown of Bedford Falls would be like without him.


‘The film is gripping enough simply with the telling of George’s lifestory. A genuine American classic.’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

‘Although peppered with colourful, sharply drawn characters, this is Stewart’s movie, instantly loveable as a small-town dreamer who sacrifices everything for others. Enjoy it in a cinema so you can sob among others.’
Ian Freer, Empire Magazine

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
