It’s A Wonderful Life (U)
This ultimate feel-good, festive favourite, from Oscar-winning director Frank Capra, stars James Stewart as despairing businessman George Bailey. One fateful Christmas Eve, George receives a visit from Clarence, a celestial messenger, who prevents him from jumping into a freezing river. The pair travel together through moments in George’s life to show him what the world would be like if he had never existed. A lesson in the humanity of community and a genuinely tender and enduring piece of yuletide cinema, guaranteed to bring tears to your eyes and a smile to your face.
The screening on Thursday 19 December is showing as part of our series of films on the Co-operative movement. Plymouth City Council wants to double the size of the co-operative economy in the city by 2025. We are planning a series of films over the next 12 months to raise awareness of the great work that co-operatives do. We are working in collaboration with PCC to present this series.
Thanks to PCC support, we are offering discounted ticket prices for the screening of It's A Wonderful Life on Thursday 19 December at 5.45pm: Full price £4. Concession £2 for Friends of PAC, OAP, students, underwaged, Under 25, PCA staff and students. Standard prices apply to the other 2 screenings.
As businesses owned and run by their members, co-operatives offer a solution to the growing sense of powerlessness people feel over business and the economy, giving them control of the businesses they are closest to - whether they shop at them, work at them or supply them. People of all kinds benefit through membership of their co-operative. Farmers are strengthening their position in competitive and global markets. Employees are having a say in how their organisations are run. Customers are influencing the businesses they use. Local residents are saving vital services.
