Not here in NY.
For decades, it was the custom here in NY to broadcast the original version of "Miracle on 34th Street" on Thanksgiving day. Not anymore. The same is true for "It's a Wonderful Life". The only way to see this film is by purchasing it on DVD. "Home Alone" and "Home Alone2" are broadcast throughout the year and now we can look forward to 24 hours of "A Christmas Story" beginning on Christmas Eve. As for the other classics, they have simply vaporized in our part of the country.
I guess I’m in a minority, but seeing “A Christmas Story” once was more than enough for me. Unnngh.
That said, I don’t like “It’s a Wonderful Life” that much.
See my post 18===the screening in question was at the Lafayette Theatre in Suffern NY. Rockland County near the border of NJ, where I live in Bergen County.
I had no idea about the lack of TV broadcasts of IAWL.
Now that I come to think of it, I haven’t seen it on TV
for at least a few years.
