“It’s a Wonderful Life,” starring James Stewart and Donna Reed, ranks among the most popular movies in cinematic history. The tale of George Bailey, a compassionate, small-town businessman who has given up on his dreams to help others, only to be rescued by the prompting of his guardian angel named Clarence, has touched millions of fans since its release in 1946. The story of life, love, redemption and discovering that everyone makes a difference, is a must-watched tradition for many. The movie, nominated for five Academy Awards, is on the American Film Institute (AFI) list of most inspirational American films of all time.
Tickets for Christmas in Vero are $6 for adults and $3 for children ages 3-17. Children younger than three-years-of-age are free.
