It's A Wonderful Life


The Power & Light District issued the call, and Kansas City's discerning cinéastes responded, paring down a field of 10 Christmas classics, old and new, to the three most-wanted movies of this holiday season. They're being screened at the AMC Mainstreet 6 (1400 Main, 816-474-4545) on successive Saturdays at 11 a.m. (Tuesdays, too, at 7 p.m.). There's still a chance to catch the bankrupt Baileys of Bedford Falls when Frank Capra's It's a Wonderful Life screens today. Next up, in a break from its annual 24-hour marathon on TNT, Bob Clark's A Christmas Story makes a welcome return to the big screen December 7 and 11. Finally, the Griswolds are back, with their ageless vampire children and the now-fugitive Cousin Eddie, in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation December 14 and 18. Tickets for these holiday-movie screenings cost only $5. For more information, see
