Community invited to free event at the Tennessee Theatre


“It’s a Wonderful Life” is a Christmas classic featuring Jimmy Stewart as George Bailey, a compassionate but debt-ridden manager of a bank in typical small-town America, and the angel that helps Bailey realize his importance in the world. Home Federal Bank is presenting two free showings of the film on Sunday, Dec. 8, at 1 and 5 p.m. at the Tennessee Theatre.

In celebration of the Christmas season, Home Federal Bank invites its East Tennessee neighbors to enjoy two free showings of “It’s a Wonderful Life” on the big screen at the historic Tennessee Theatre on Sunday, Dec. 8.

“The positive community response to this event the past three years has been overwhelming,” said Home Federal Bank President Dale Keasling. “We love seeing the packed house and hearing from people that attending the movie has become a fun and relaxing addition to their yuletide traditions.”

The film will be shown at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m., and doors will open one hour prior to each showing. The event is free, and no ticket is required. Seating is limited to the theater’s capacity.

As a bonus, moviegoers will also receive $2 discount coupons for the Holidays on Ice rink on Market Square, also sponsored by the bank. Coupons are valid Dec. 8-22.

Released in 1947 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. 20 on the American Film Institute’s “100 Greatest Movies of All Time” list.

The Tennessee Theatre is located at 604 S. Gay Street in downtown Knoxville. Convenient, free parking is available in the State Street garage. Patrons with special needs should contact the Tennessee Theatre in advance at 865-684-1200.
