This Christmas fantasy starring Jimmy Stewart as a disillusioned American dreamer sees Capra at his sentimental peak. Join us for the final uplifting instalment of our journey through Capra’s America, one of the most popular and critically acclaimed films of all time.
The film’s reception was lukewarm on its release, and its elevation to beloved classic only came decades later after it became a Christmas television staple in the late 1970s. Even Capra cited this one as his favourite and used to screen it for his own family every Christmas! NFSA 35mm print.
Ticket price includes includes entry to Prelude to War @ 2PM
