Jimmy Stewart is George Bailey, a good man who has descended into despair because he considers himself cheated out of the life he could have had.
His Guardian Angel Clarence Odbody (Henry Travers), arrives in his hour of need to show George how loved he is by everyone in his small community of Bedford Falls and what life would look like without him.
A timeless story of redemption and hope that is an absolute treasure, returning to our screens in a beautiful new digital restoration. Guaranteed to bring tears and smiles in equal measure, this is a Tyneside Cinema Christmas tradition that’s too good to miss!
“Although peppered with colourful, sharply drawn characters, this is Stewart’s movie, instantly loveable as a small town dreamer who sacrifices everything for others. His journey to despair and back warms the cockles like little else. Enjoy it in a cinema so you can sob among others.”
