A Celebration of Caltech Alumnus Frank Capra and Screening of It’s a Wonderful Life
Join CaltechLive! for a free, holiday screening of It’s a Wonderful Life on Saturday, December 1 in Caltech’s Beckman Auditorium. The screening is part of a broader tribute to Caltech alumnus and film direct Frank Capra (BS ’18), which will include a family focused gathering featuring holiday crafts, cocoa, cookies, and carolers.
The event will also include special guest appearances from Capra’s son, Tom Capra, and actor Jimmy Hawkins, who played Little Tommy in the film. Together the two will share insights into Capra’s life and anecdotes about what was happening on set when the cameras were not rolling.
Cry Wilderness, a book based on Capra’s manuscripts recently found by his family, will be available for sale.
