The festive favourite film It's A Wonderful Life will be showing at Kennaway House on Sunday, December 10. 

The newly formed Sidmouth Film Society is putting on this evergreen crowd-pleaser, and will also be serving mulled wine and mince pies. Doors open at 4pm and the film will start at 4.30pm.

Tickets are £5.50, or £4.50 for Friends of Kennaway House. 

Jennifer Jennings-Wright of the Film Society said: "In the cinemas I worked in, we would always put on a screening of It’s A Wonderful Life in the run-up to Christmas. There’s something about this tale of small-town community life and how important we all are to each other that is so crucial, and perhaps more so with every passing year. George Bailey goes on a journey to understanding that we could all do with taking from time to time. Come along on the 10th December and we’ll all take the journey together. With mulled wine and mince pies in hand, naturally!"

Sidmouth Film Society started in October with a successful screening of the Italian melodrama Cinema Paradiso. The intention is to have a screening every month in the Cellar Bar, with international and independent films as well as mainstream choices that may have been a little overlooked.  

The society is currently putting together a season of films for 2024. If anybody would like to request any particular favourites, they can email or come to It’s A Wonderful Life and tell a member of the society.
