I love It's a Wonderful Life, here are some things about the movie:
"It's a Wonderful Life was nominated for five Oscars without winning any, but the film has since been recognized by the American Film Institute as one of the 100 best American films ever made, and placed number one on their list of the most inspirational American films of all time."

Johnor, this sounds like a christmas-dream ! Wow!
I would love to go to this cinema, can I ask where it is?
(I will be moving to the UK next year and I already have the maps out, trying to figure out what is right and what is left)
i am fortunate enough to live near to a beautiful little village that has the most old fashioned picture house (cinema) in england. it was built in the late 1920's and is still set out like a traditional 1920's cinema, there is nothing modern about it, from the staff to the seating. it is beautiful!
anyways, on 23rd December they are playing "it's a wonderful life" at 7pm, tickets are on sale now - that's how close we are to the season! and i am going to get some next week for me and a couple of family members. i just wanted an honest opinion of what you think of the film (i haven't seen it - *hangs head in shame*) is it a weepy? is it a real feel good Christmas classic? is it suitable for younger kids?
Yes it is a little weepy, yes it is one of THE all time classics, and yes suitable for children.
Now on the other part of your post....never seeing it before?
I guess that surprises me.
In the states up until a few years ago - it would come on literally 25 to 50 time each season. Even all day and all night marathons.
I honestly don't think i know anyone that has not seen it.
