It’s a Wonderful Life
Councilmember Tom LaBonge kicked off the Holiday Season Friday, Nov. 18, during the Los Angeles City Council meeting by honoring the iconic movie It’s a Wonderful Life on its 65th anniversary.
LaBonge announced that Dec. 3 will be “It’s a Wonderful Life Day” in the City of Los Angeles to commemorate both the film’s message and its ties to Los Angeles, where it was shot in 1946.
The Cultural Affairs Committee of the Studio City Neighborhood Council will host a free Luminaria Festival for Studio City residents to celebrate the holiday season.
The free event will include free entertainment, tours of the Campo, children’s activities, and refreshments, as it recognizes the western and Spanish past of the Campo de Cahuenga. To celebrate the season, it will be decorated with beautiful luminarias. Friends of the Studio City Library will read children’s stories, Campo de Cahuenga will be offering oral history tours, and entertainers will perform during the event.
Free parking is available in the Campo de Cahuenga parking lot or the MTA parking lot.
