It's A Wonderful Life (NR)
Frank Capra's bittersweet, heartwarming movie IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE is about a man who comes to realize the value of his own life has been a Christmas favorite for years. At the story's center is George Bailey (Jimmy Stewart), a man with big plans whose even bigger heart keeps him from leaving his hometown. When George wishes he were never born, an angel shows him the tremendous impact he has had on his community.

Arthur Christmas (PG)
Santa (voiced by Jim Broadbent) -- aka Malcolm "Father" Christmas -- is executing a state-of-the-art "gift drop" around the world, with his son and heir apparent, Steve (Hugh Laurie), running what he thinks is his father's final global delivery. With scores of elves acting like stealth gift ninjas, Santa returns to the North Pole on his spacecraft thinking it's "Mission Accomplished." But when the cleaning elves discover an undelivered gift, kindly younger son Arthur (James McAvoy) joins a covert rescue mission with his Grandsanta (Bill Nighy) and gift-wrapping elf Bryony (Ashley Jensen) to get the pink bicycle with training wheels to its rightful owner in Cornwall, England. Unfortunately for the easily scared Arthur, Grandsanta only knows how to lead an ancient sleigh with out-of-practice reindeer, so the trip is bumpier than anyone envisioned.
