Experience a true holiday classic in a whole new way -- on the big screen at Davies Symphony Hall with a live performance of Dimitri Tiomkin's heartwarming score performed by the San Francisco Symphony. A perennial Christmas favorite, actor James Stewart and director Frank Capra are at their very finest in this uplifting 1946 tale epitomizing the magic of classic Hollywood. On Christmas Eve, George Bailey, a small-town man who's sacrificed his dreams for his loved ones, reaches the end of his rope. Ready to end it all, George is saved by a bumbling guardian angel who shows him what the town would have been like without him. Featuring Capra's one-two punch of humor and pathos, Donna Reed in a star-making role, and the soaring sounds of live musical accompaniment from the San Francisco Symphony, It's a Wonderful Life is a must-see this Christmas season.
