Bank celebrates six years of offering free holiday event
In celebration of the season, Home Federal Bank invites the public to enjoy its Christmas gift to the community – two free screenings of “It’s a Wonderful Life” at the historic Tennessee Theatre on Sunday, Dec. 13.
“We’ve been presenting this holiday classic film for six years, and we appreciate this opportunity to make the holidays brighter for so many,” Home Federal Bank President Dale Keasling said. “We love seeing the packed house each year and hearing people say that attending the movie has become a fun and inspiring family tradition.”
The film will be shown at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m., and doors will open one hour prior to each screening. The event is free, and no ticket is required. Seating is limited to the theater’s capacity. Convenient, free parking is available in the State Street garage, 520 State Street.
As a bonus, moviegoers will may also pick up $2 discount coupons for the City of Knoxville’s Holidays on Ice open-air skating rink on Market Square, also sponsored by the bank.
Released in 1946 and starring Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed, “It’s a Wonderful Life” is a bittersweet comedy/drama about George Bailey, a compassionate but debt-ridden manager of a bank in typical small-town America, and the angel that helps him realize his importance in the world. The film was nominated for five Academy Awards and ranks No. 1 on the American Film Institute’s “100 Most Inspiring Films of All Time” list.
The Tennessee Theatre is located at 604 S. Gay St. in downtown Knoxville. Patrons with special needs should contact the Tennessee Theatre in advance at 865-684-1200.
