Frank Capra’s “It’s a Wonderful Life” has become a holiday classic starring Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed.
On Saturday, December 1st, WTOP Film Critic Jason Fraley is helping turn Downtown Frederick into our own Bedford Falls.
Join us Saturday evening after Weinberg Center for the Arts‘ 7pm screening of “It’s a Wonderful Life” for the second-annual “It’s a Wonderful Walk” along Patrick & Market Streets shouting holiday cheer to the local businesses – just like George Bailey in the inspirational finale.
There’s a theater (“Merry Christmas movie house!”), emporium (“Merry Christmas emporium!”) and banks (“Merry Christmas you wonderful old building and loan!”).
In the interfaith spirit of the film’s sponsor, the Religious Coalition for Emergency Human Needs, feel free to shout “Merry Christmas,” “Happy Hanukkah,” “Happy Holidays” or whatever you like – this is an inclusive event meant to bring people together, celebrating our community’s spirit of compassionate generosity!
The walk will end at Bushwaller’s Pub for food, drinks, music and maybe, just maybe, a community singing of “Auld Lang Syne.” Note, since this is a Saturday night, you must be 21+ to enter Bushwaller’s. Under 21? Feel free to join us for the rest of the walk!
It’s a wonderful event in a wonderful town to remind us all that it truly is a wonderful life.
