The historic Paramount Theatre in downtown Abilene is proud to present the Christmas Classic movie "It's A Wonderful Life." This holiday classic will be one-day-only at the historic Paramount Theatre, Friday, December 9th and 10th at 7:30 PM, and Saturday, December 10th at 2 PM. Tickets for this film are on sale now.

Don't miss your opportunity to watch "It's A Wonderful Life" in the historic surroundings of the Paramount Theatre located at 352 Cypress Street in downtown Abilene. The film will be shown under the mystic star-lit ceilings of the historic Paramount Theatre. There's something special about watching this particular Christmas classic in the theatre where it was originally shown in.

"It's A Wonderful Life" is the story of local banker 'George Bailey' and it's Christmas Eve in 1946. George misplaces the bank's daily deposit, then all heck breaks loose as George Bailey goes crazy trying to find the bank's $8,000 deposit he accidentally misplaced in the daily newspaper he gave to Mr. Potter. Potter happens to be the evil nemesis in this classic Christmas film.

As George Bailey contemplates committing suicide by jumping off the town's bridge into the frozen river below so that he and his family won't face the shame and scrutiny of losing the bank's small fortune. Then Angel Second Class Clarence comes to George Bailey's rescue by jumping into the river himself and having George Bailey jump into the river to save the crazy little angel.

As the story goes Bailey makes the statement that he wished he'd never been born. So, Angel Second Class shows George what a life without him would really be like. In the end, all the town's people were praying for George Bailey to be okay since no one could seem to find him in town

Without me giving away the ending of this classic film, I'll admit it's my favorite movie of all time and I too plan on being there at the Paramount Theatre. Please check out this film as I promise, it will put you in the holiday spirit.
