Filled with oak-panelled rooms and charming original features, it’s the perfect setting for cosying up with a movie and a loved one this winter. Frank Capra's timeless classic could melt the iciest of hearts. If you haven’t had the good fortune of seeing it yet, It's A Wonderful Life is about a man who's given up his dreams to help others and whose imminent suicide on Christmas Eve is intervened by his guardian angel. This film embodies everything that the Christmas spirit is all about. When the end credits roll you'll be struggling to keep the tears at bay. You'll also have no doubt that xmas has arrived. As festive fun goes, this is right at the top of the tree. "The inspirational, thoroughly festive ending is guaranteed to bring tears to the eyes." – Daily Telegraph "The most well-loved of all Christmas movies." – Chicago Tribune Certificate: PG. Runtime: 2 hours 15 minutes. Doors to Sutton House open half an hour before the event. The film will start at the advertised time, and no trailers will be shown in advance. The fatboy bean bags are huge, and seat one person spaciously or two people snuggled up. If lounging's not really your thing, you can also grab a more traditional seat. Either way, there'll be blankets and cushions available for all.
"A genuine American classic."
