The Colonial Theatre, 163 High St., invites one and all to a special event to warm both hearts and homes. The Christmas classic “It’s a Wonderful Life” will be screened Monday, Dec. 1, at 6:45 p.m. at the downtown cinema. Admission is a suggested donation of $10, since this is a benefit show for the Interfaith Fuel Fund of the Greater Bay Area Ministerium.

Frank Capra directs Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed in a story that proves how one life can make a difference in this classic film from 1946, offered as it rarely is on a big screen.

Everyone is encouraged to come see this heart-warming picture about small-town life, with all proceeds to help warm the neighbors in our own small towns. For more information, call 338-1930 or visit
