It's A Wonderful Life

Leighton Buzzard Library Theatre has made a list and checked it twice and compiled some classic Christmas movies to be screened.

A special screening of It’s a Wonderful Life is on Wednesday at 8pm. The festive feel-good flick has been voted as the holiday classic to define all holiday classics by film website Rotten Tomatoes. Tickets cost between £4.30 and £6.70.

There will be two family films as well. Everyone’s favourite Peruvian Bear, Paddington, embarks on adventures in London. Starring Downton Abbey’s Hugh Bonneville plus Sally Hawkins and Julie Walters, Paddington is befriended by the Brown family, but finds city life a little different from what he had imagined and soon the rare little bear catches the eye of a museum taxidermist.

Screenings are on Wednesday and Tuesday, December 29, both at 2pm, and the latter is a relaxed screening, designed to welcome those on the autism spectrum or anyone who would benefit from a relaxed cinema environment.

Wednesday, December 30, at 5pm sees a new take on the Peter Pan legend, from the film studio that made Harry Potter.

Pan is the story of an orphan who is spirited away to the magical Neverland and stars Hugh Jackman and Rooney Mara.

Tickets for these matinee films cost from £4 and £5.45.
