It's a Wonderful Life
Yesterday was our family "Christmas Day"(because some of us will be on the other side of the globe, and some on the plane going to that other side of the globe).
How fitting it was that we got to view It's a Wonderful Life on the big screen, right here in our little hometown of Bexley!
I know it's a classic, but yesterday was my first time ever seeing the movie. I don't think there was a dry eye in the theatre.
It was also our first time to the Drexel Theatre", an unassuming movie house on Main St. that tends to feature a lot of independent, interesting films rather than the typical big box ones.
The audience was treated to pre-movie trivia questions complete with prizes. We also got to sing along, the old fashioned way (with the hopping dots), some Christmas songs led by a sweet girl, a volunteer from the audience.
With some food brought in to donate to the mid-Ohio Foodbank, we only paid $2 each for this wonderful experience!
The good news is, it will be showing again today at 4pm, and next Wednesday, December 15th.
It made a great end to our pseudo-Christmas day (albeit, quite emotional from one of the better movies I have ever seen).
