Princeton presents holiday movie classic to benefit charity
Alumnus Jimmy Stewart's "It's a Wonderful Life" will play on big screen

PRINCETON, N.J. -- Local residents can unwind from the holiday hustle by watching the classic "It's a Wonderful Life" on the big screen, while benefiting the Princeton Community Area Foundation.

The film, starring Jimmy Stewart of Princeton's class of 1932, will be shown at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 19, in Richardson Auditorium, Alexander Hall, on the Princeton University campus. The event is sponsored by the Department of University Services and the Office of Community and State Affairs. Refreshments will be served.

Tickets will go on sale Monday, Dec. 1, at the Richardson box office. Admission is $3 for adults and children over 12, and free for children 12 and under accompanied by an adult.

All proceeds will be donated to the Bud Vivian Award Fund. The fund was established by the foundation as a tribute to the late Bud Vivian, former University secretary and director of community affairs. The award is presented annually to honor community service achievements. A grant is given to a Princeton-based charity of the winner's choice.

Ticket office hours are noon to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Tickets also will be available two hours before the show. For more information, call (609) 258-5000. The auditorium is wheelchair accessible.
