Capri Classics: It’s A Wonderful Life and Sockball Fight
December 8, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The Capri Theatre is getting into the spirit of giving. We’ve partnered with the Mid-Alabama Coalition for the Homeless (MACH) to host the Capri’s third annual Sockball fight – i.e., a snowball fight, but with socks.
To participate, the rules are simple: Bring clean, unused socks to It’s a Wonderful Life on December 8 at 7:30. After the pre-show talk is finished, participants will ball up the socks and try to protect their drinks as best they can. We’ll do a countdown, and then everybody goes to town. It might be the closest thing to a snowball fight we get all year! After a couple minutes, volunteers will come by to collect the sockballs. All socks will be donated to MACH.
One of the more uplifting stories about suicide that the Capri shows, James Stewart’s George Bailey is about to throw himself off a bridge when an angel trying to earn his wings decides to show George what would have happened to George’s hometown if George had never existed. George is shocked to find that as the man who saved his brother’s life and helped everyone in his town stay out of debt, that the people he cares about might have been impacted by his no longer existing. Upon finding out that life really can get worse than he thought, George decides to live after all.
Cast: James Stewart, Donna Reed
