Movie Time in Conroe

Classic holiday movies play at a local theater

Hot dog! It is a wonderful life — or so the classic movie implies — and we think it is the perfect start to the holiday season. So take some time out of your busy schedule and watch the holiday film, It’s a Wonderful Life. Directed by Frank Capra, it has been a favorite for decades. Part of the original review said the following:

Frank Capra “again proves he can fashion what ordinarily would be homilizing hokum into gleaming, engaging entertainment for all brows-high, low or beetle.” Jimmy Stewart “hasn’t lost a whit of his erstwhile boyish personality (when called to turn it on) and further shows a maturity and depth he seems recently to have acquired,” and Donna Reed “will reach full-fledged stardom with this effort.”

This movie leaves the viewer feeling like their faith in humanity is valid, and we think that’s a good thing. (If you are an old-movie buff, you may enjoy these other original reviews of holiday classic movies.) Other movies for the season include the following favorites (descriptions are from IMDb). They’re worth watching over again each year.


While You Were Sleeping (1995) — Romantic Comedy
