Christmas isn’t Christmas without the ultimate festive classic from Oscar-winning director Frank Capra, starring James Stewart as despairing businessmen George Bailey.

One fateful Christmas Eve, George receives a visit from Clarence, a celestial messenger, who prevents him from jumping into a freezing river. The pair travel together through moments in George's life to show him what the world would be like if he had never existed.

“What is remarkable about It's a Wonderful Life is how well it holds up over the years; it's one of those ageless movies, like Casablanca or The Third Man, that improves with age.” – Roger Ebert

Relaxed screenings are aimed at audiences with autism or other sensory sensitivities, but are open to everyone. This means the house lights will be up a little and the sound levels will be lowered. The screening will be sold at half capacity and the seats will be unallocated to allow customers freedom of movement during the film if needed. The screening will start 5 minutes after the advertised screening time. There will be no ads or trailers. For more access information about QFT, including a walk through video, click here.
