Jimmy Stewart Fantasy Films Coming to Town

Over the course of the next few weeks, a pair of classic fantasy films starring the late great Jimmy Stewart will screen in the Southland area. Things kick off on Sunday with IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE at both the Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro and the Bay Theatre in Seal Beach; the film also screens at the Bay on Monday and Wednesday. Then in mid December, BELL, BOOK AND CANDLE will screen for three days at the Bay Theater. WONDERFUL LIFE is of course a seasonal classic that will probably be screening at other revival houses around town in December, but you might as well catch it this week. BELL, although not remembered as a Christmas film, actually does open during the Christmas season, so it too is a timely film. Both are available on home video, but why not show a little holiday spirit by getting out of the house and revising some old favorites in a theatre filled with like-minded fans?
