How Often Do You Get a Second Chance?

If you've never seen It's a Wonderful Life on the big screen, you're missing a remarkable experience, and for all those who, for whatever reason, did not come to see this holiday classic at Fairview Cinema 3 last Saturday, there is another chance this Saturday. 

Friends of Fairview Cinema 3 have made special arrangements to repeat Breakfast and a Movie on Saturday, December 21. Enjoy coffee and coffee cake (no leftovers--we're making everything fresh) while watching this beloved American classic as it was meant to be seen--on a big screen in a movie theater. Come appreciate the detail and nuance--visual and verbal--you've been missing all these years!

The movie starts at 10 a.m., but come anytime after 9:30 to get your coffee and coffee cake and settle in to enjoy the film that is for many a Christmas tradition. A donation of $25 is suggested to benefit the Fairview Cinema 3 projector fund and help our only locally owned, hometown movie house (just across the border in Greenport) survive the switch to digital. Enjoy a happy ending while helping to make another one happen!

Reservations are not required (there's plenty of room in the theater), but humor us and send an email to let us know you're coming.


  1. Like many people, I’ve seen this movie on TV dozens of times and can quote long passages of the script. I attended last week’s showing of “Wonderful Life”, and was very impressed by the difference between the movie theatre experience of this film and the TV-based experience. The expansion of the visual field allows for much higher resolution of details and a greatly improved overall “immersion” in the atmosphere of the film. Also, the theme of the movie is very much in alignment with the theme of the fundraising event. This sort of collective experience – sharing a performance with other people instead of in isolation – is worthy of our support.
    I recommend this film highly and encourage all of our readers to use this opportunity to support our community theatre.
