We hopped in the car and went to view It's a Wonderful Life: snacks, the big screen, a movie from 1946 that has lasted the test of time.
And the price was right -- $6 each.
Our theatre was full. I was worried that we would never get in, but no, the long line up to get past the concession and into the theatre was created of potential Star Wars viewers. They like to come costumed. We were in our Victoria wear: light coats, and no snow gear.
"A good movie, a really good movie," said one of the boys.
I wonder why that one has stood the test of time?
