It’s a Wonderful Life at The Arts Club, Win Ticketsby
The Arts Club is presenting three holiday shows this season including the return of It’s a Wonderful Life at the Granville Island Stage, on now until January 2nd, 2011.
I saw this production in 2008 and it was as charming as the old black and white film by Frank Capra but with colourful costumes and vivid emotions. There’s nothing like taking in a night of theatre in Vancouver and with the snow outside, this holiday-themed production is sure to warm your heart.
Tickets start at $29 and you can also arrive early for a bite to eat at the Backstage Lounge, which offers a discount for theatre-goers on the night of their show. If you would like to see It’s a Wonderful Life this season, here’s how you can enter to win a pair of tickets:
I will draw one winner from all entries on December 6th at 12:00pm. The winner will get two tickets to the performance on Friday, December 10th.
Update The winner is Jeff, have a great time at the show!

My favourite Christmas movie is The Grinch that Stole Christmas. It’s a heartwarming classic!
Too many to count…but probably White Christmas and Love Actually are my favourites…and It’s a Wonderful Life, of course!
I would have to say that “The Grinch who stole Christmas” is my all time fav Christmas movie!
It’s a Wonderful Life!
Two favourites tie … It’s a Wonderful Life and A Child’s Christmas in Wales.
Always loved the movie, would love tickets to see it live!
We always watch Love Actually at Christmas. 🙂 But would love to see It’s a Wonderful Life.
White Christmas – has to be watched every year!
Well, it goes without saying that every year I have to see It’s a Wonderful Life. It is such an uplifting movie.
It’s a Wonderful Life of course!
Rudolph. The claymation version.
Mine would be Home Alone, just plain hilarious!
home alone is the traditional christmas movie in our household =)
My favourite is the black-and-white version of A Christmas Carol with Alistair Sim. I watch it every year.
Mircle on 34th St!
Or Home Alone..
both fav of mine during the holiday season
Jim Carey’s “The Grinch who stole Christmas” and “Elf” 🙂
Holiday Inn where White Christmas was first performed in a movie.
I have 2 movies that I like to watch over the holidays–the original Rudolph the Red-Nosed Rain Deer in claymation and A Christmas Story
Love Actually, The Grinch, and Elf!
‘It’s a wonderful life’ without question! I love Christmas and there are quite a few festive movies that I love to watch over the season but Christmas morning is not the same without ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’
My fav is the classic “Grinch” and then”Bad Santa” so seeing a heartwarming classic like “It’s a Wonderful Life” would do me some good!
Does a Charlie Brown Christmas count? If so, that’s my vote. Or maybe the Garfield Christmas special.
Favourite movie during Christmas is Love Actually!
It’s a toss up between Christmas Vacation and Elf 🙂
Oooooh that’s a tough one – I say it’s a tie between Christmas Vacation and A Christmas Story! Both must be watched every year or else it’s just not Christmas 🙂
I’d have not to be too original and say … It’s a wonderful life !
I watch it every Xmas, it’s a tradition.
Jimmy Stewart is the best
every year – i watch 2 versions of the same movie… Miracle on 34th Street! Today – was the original… just in time for American Thanksgiving… they had the Macy’s Christmas parade…. in a few weeks – i’ll watch the newer version! Love it! If it can convince me to believe… surely it must be! right? lol
Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer.
I’ve never actually seen it’s a wonderful life in it’s entirety. I have quite a few Christmas classics in my DVD collection but this is not one of them. I’m thinking perhaps I should pick it up.
I LOVE Home Alone…. Its a MUST WATCH during the Holiday Season. Nothing like getting warm and cozy to Joe Pesci Voice and an IRON on the face of the bad guys….. Christmas Classic!
the Holiday starring Jude Law
I would have to say I love Christmas!!! To pick one is difficult but I would have to say that I never get tired of watching- A Christmas Story. This movie is heartwarming, funny, and nostalgic. It’s also a great family movie that everyone can relate to.
Every Christmas Eve my family and I watch Alister Sims in A Christmas Carol… even if we have had our regular night before Christmas argument we will ALWAYS sit and watch it. Pretty funny actually 😀
A Christmas Story. Good ol’ Ralphie and his BB gun!
my favourite is It`s a Wonderful life and I would love to see it live
The newer version of It’s a Wonderful Life!
Every Christmas I watch three movies:
Holiday Inn – where Bing Crosby sings White Christmas
Love Actually – to watch Hugh Grant’s booty dance, and the scene where the guy confesses his love via cards to Keira Knightly,
The Family Stone – to see how tight a family can be around one amazing mother
Meet Me in St. Louis, although not strictly a Christmas movie, for the classic “Have yourself a merry little Christmas”. And of course, It’s A Wonderful Life.
Favourite Christmastime movie… Has to be Love Actually. It’s not exactly a Christmas movie, but it’s my all time favourite. Unfortunately, I haven’t ever seen It’s a Wonderful Life so I can’t say that’s my favourite!
Miracle on 34th
Hands down, without a doubt, my favourite Christmas movie is, National Lampoons Christmas Vacation.
I love to watch “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”.
Oh and “A Charlie Brown Christmas”!
And who could forget “A Christmas Story”!
Have to watch them all every year!
I’ve got two fave movies I look forward to watching during the holidays: Love Actually with the girls and Home Alone (original) with the kids! =D
My fav xmas movie is The Christmas Story. There are just so many classic moments in that movie! The Dad is just way too awesome.
Our family loves Christmas Vacation—have watched it every year since it came out and we STILL find some new funny detail to laugh at that we’ve never noticed before. I’d actually love to have “Cousin Eddy” over for Christmas…
Love Actually! I watch it every Christmas with somebody that hasn’t seen it yet 🙂
[…] tickets!Â Miss604.com is holding a contest for a pair of tickets for the Dec 10 performance.Â Click here to enter for […]
My favourite Christmas movie? That’s easy-Home Alone! That does count right? It’s a classic that is just as funny and heartwarming and generally awesome now as it was when I was a kid.
I can’t get through the holidays without a dose of Love Actually.
Favourite Christmas movie would have to be Home Alone.
Elf, White Christmas, The Grinch original & it’s a wonderful life 🙂
The Grinch that Stole Christmas
I love watching a Charlie Brown’s Christmas!
Batman, when he drives his batmobile to meet The Penguine in his icy cave.
This is a classic that I’ve always watched, but I now supplement with Grinch, and ELF …
Definitely Elf and Love, Actually (even though Love, Actually isn’t really a “Christmas” movie per se!)
A Christmas Carol
I just have to see White Christmas every year. Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas if I didn’t get to enjoy this movie once again.
Miracle on 34th Street. It’s a classic.
It might be wrong to respond with any movie other than “It’s a Wonderful Life” but I have to say my favourite Christmas movie is Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. It’s not really Christmas until I’ve seen it.
A Christmas Story hands down. Laugh out loud stuff.
Hallmarks… “a season for miracles”.
The Grinch Who Stole Christmas!
National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. Love the dry turkey scene.
The grinch who stole Christmas!! The cartoon version!
Definitely Love Actually!
I like Home Alone!
Itâ€™s a Wonderful Life of course 🙂
I love It’s A Wonderful Life!
My fav Christmas movie if Miracle on 34th Street (original version)
I love to watch Christmas movies; my favorite one is White Christmas!
I would love to see It’s a Wonderful Life! I try to watch it, along with “A Christmas Carol” every year – to see the play rather than the dvd would be so much fun!
charlie brown’s christmas 😀
Love Actually and Christmas Eve on Sesame Street
A Muppets Christmas! My brothers and sister and I get together and laugh like we did when we were kids. 🙂
Love Actually has become a Christmas tradition for us.
Hands down White Christmas! It just wouldn’t be Christmas without Bing Crosby singing “White Christmas”
The Sound of Music 🙂
It’s a Wonderful Life is in the top 5 but seeing it as a play would beat all.
it’s a wonderful life for sure
Jim Carrey and the Grinch.
A Christmas story with Ralphie.
A Christmas story. “You’ll shoot your eye out!”
Hmmm . . . I know a Charlie Brown Christmas isn’t a full movie, but no holiday season is complete without at least one viewing.
What a great way to spend a night.
My favourite movie… Elf, love Will Ferrell.
My boyfriend and I love to watch Elf on christmas eve…and I also must watch How the Grinch Syole Christmas it’s a classic. Pick me Pick me..I’ve heard great things about his play!
My Boyfriend and I always watch the movie Elf on Christmas Eve…but another fav must see holiday movie is How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Love Actually… I get a bit teary when at the airport, watching people wait to see their loved one go through the arrival doors… and then they meet!
White Christmas for sure! With It’s a Wonderful Life as a close second!
Three way tie: A Christmas Carol (w/Alastair Sim), White Christmas and Elf. You probably can string about 7-10 feet of popcorn-cranberry garland watching them back-to-back (which I may just end up doing)!
Santa Clause II because I played as an extra in it! Also, very cute movie so it’s a win =D
Thanks, Miss 604!
I love watching A Muppet’s Christmas Carol. Just got it on DVD this year. Can’t wait!
I’m right there with all the other Elf lovers!
My favourite, favourite is “A Christmas Story” and Pacific Cinemateque is showing it on the big screen Dec. 19th!!!
It’s always been It’s a Wonderful Life! I can recite every line!
Anything by Rankin/ Bass like Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town!
1. Santa Claus 1
2. Miracle on 34th strete
3. Its a Wonderful life
Well there aren’t too many “modern classics” when it comes to Chistmas flicks, but Scrooged with Bill Murray is still laugh-out-loud funny!
For some reason i always love watching the ‘Ernest saves xmas’ movie! 🙂
Love Actually has become a Holiday tradition. By far my favourite Christmas movie
My favorite Christmas movie would definitely be It’s a Wonderful Life, and I would absolutely love to see it in person!
Hands down, best Christmas movie to watch is Love Actually.
White Christmas, It’s A Wonderful Life, and the California Raisins’ Claymation Special!
Elf. For so long it was It’s a Wonderful Life….and I`d love to see the stage version…but honestly the family has much more fun watching Elf and White Christmas.
Home Alone (1 and 2) and Love Actually
Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story, and Its a Wonderful Life.
The Grinch who Stole Christmas 🙂
It’s a tie between It’s a Wonderful Life and the orginal Miracle on 34th Street…….I love the classics!!
It’s a Wonderful Life
It might not be a very old movie, but the one I love to watch at this time of year is Love Actually, it just really feels so warm to watch this on a cold winter’s evening.
Home Alone! It’s my all-time favorite. I’ve never seen ‘it’s a Wonderful Life’ though. Would be lovely!
We watch Love Actually and The Grinch who stole Christmas.
Home Alone and Love actually.
Love Actually. I live far away from my family, so the scene at the end with all the people meeting in the airport makes me cry every time!
Home Alone and How the Grinch Stole Christmas!
As it happens, It’s a Wonderful Life is my undisputed favorite: George Bailey has always reminded me of my father.
It’s a Wonderful Life and Miracle at 34th Street, both great movies!
It’s a Wonderful Life is my fave. But close seconds are Elf & Charlie Brown & the Grinch!
Home Alone 1 and 2! I can never get sick of them.
Home Alone! Know every word.
I’ve never seen this before, what a great holiday experience!
my favourite performance!
I love watching fairy tales for Christmas – hard to tell a favourite though cause I love them all!
I love to watch A Christmas Story. My family always watched it together on TV when I was a kid.
This year Ier are loving FRED CLAUSE with vinc vaughan. looooooovvvvve the dancing scene in the workshop. kevin spacey is such a *$%^&* in this movie!
oops. let me try that again…..This year we are loving Fred Clause with Vince Vaughan. LOVE the dancing scene in the elves workshop and kevibn spacey please such a mean so and so!
The Grinch (original version)
My favorite Christmas movie is The Holiday 🙂
luv watching The Grinch Who Stole Christmas
“Love Actually” is a recent fav, but Grinch and the little puppets (Rudolph, Snatra Claus is coming to Town, etc…) make it Christmas.
Not to be ridiculous – but in fact, my favourite movie to watch at Christmas is It’s a Wonderful Life, followed by White Christmas. And of course the Grinch who stole Christmas is way up on the list too!
My annual Christmas movie is Love Actually. I’m a sap for that movie.
A Christmas story – the cutest!!
