It’s a Wonderful Life to be shown in Maybole

A showing of the nation’s most favourite move “It’s a Wonderful Life” is planned for Ayrshire fans.

On Friday December 20 The Carrick Centre, Maybole will open its doors from 7pm for a screening of the classic movie starring the late, great James Stewart which regularly tops the popularity polls both her and across the Atlantic.

The number one feel-good film was directed by Frank Capra and tells the tale of a downcast bank manager played by James Stewart, who sets out to kill himself on Christmas Eve but changes his mind thanks to the intervention of a guardian angel, who helps him realise he has made a difference in the world.

The Carrick Cinema Club which is organising the showing at 7.30pm promises a warm glow as well as mulled wine and mince pies.

Secretary Liza Donaldson said: “We are delighted to be showing the original film made in 1946- just as plans for a sequel have been announced. This should help everyone get in the mood for a happy Christmas and New Year.”

Advance tickets are on sale at the Carrick Centre and also on the door at £5 with members of the CCC free. Organisers are advising cinema goers to come early since there has already been keen interest in this film screening.
