It makes me so sad that Cornerhouse (an independent cinema and favourite haunt of mine in Manchester) is moving to a new state-of-the-art building down the road. Watching 'It's a Wonderful Life' in their old-fashioned main screen, then coming out into the city streets is one of the most happy and unforgettable moments of my life.
“Louisa May Alcott’s Immortal Masterpiece” receives equal billing with Katharine Hepburn on this Little Women movie poster. Little Women (1933) is a “coming of age” drama tracing the lives of four sisters: Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy. During the American Civil War, the girls father is away serving as a minister to the troops. The family, headed by their beloved Marmee, must struggle to make ends meet, with the help of their kind and wealthy neighbor, Mr. Laurence, and his grandson Laurie.
