You will cry, and that’s all right—I saw my father cry for the first time 20 years ago while he was watching It’s a Wonderful Life. Most people can relate a special moment connected to this movie, but even if not, bring a loved one to Broadway Centre Cinemas this Christmas and make new memories.

Salt Lake Film Society continues its Christmas tradition by showing this classic on the big screen—the quintessential way to experience it. There’s something about being in a room with dozens of strangers, eyes swelling simultaneously, when George Bailey gets a second chance at life, runs home from the perilous bridge to his awaiting friends and family, who have raised funds to save the beloved Bailey Building & Loan. Then, there’s cheering, laughing, hugging, and caroling. That’s the Christmas spirit. Geez, they don’t make ‘em like they used to. (Austen Diamond)

It’s a Wonderful Life @ Broadway Centre Cinemas, 300 S. 111 East, 801-321-0310, Thursday, Dec. 24, 3 p.m., & Friday, Dec. 25, 7:30 p.m.
