It's A Wonderful LifeChristmas Eve there were sufficient kids in the Aldeburgh Cinema for It's A Wonderful Life for us to think Some optimistic parents here.  When the film started it was Star Wars ... It's A Wonderful Life was being shown in the new to us 40 seater Studio screen upstairs.

Even more difficult these days to park in Aldeburgh with two hours parking no return within four spaces by the Moot Hall seven days a week ... it's not like they're hosting the bloody Olympics or something.
