Festive cinema: It's A Wonderful Life at People’s History Museum, City Centre, 13 December 2018, free entry - Visit now

What better place to watch the most heartwarming socially conscious Christmas film than the national museum of democracy?

Join the People’s History Museum for a festive screening of It’s A Wonderful Life, the iconic story of Christmas cheer and solidarity and arguably one of the most popular feel good films of the season. Whether you have seen George Bailey’s story countless times or have yet to discover this charming socialist fable, watching it surrounded by the artifacts that contributed to our own democratic history will let you view the film in a very different light. The Left Bank cafe bar will be providing a range of cinema snacks on the night, including popcorn.

As part of the museum’s Radical Lates series, entry is free although there is a suggested donation of five pounds. If you aren’t quite in the mood for Christmas cheer yet the whole Museum will also be open till 8 pm for regular visitors to explore.
