Celebrate Christmas with Zuzu from 'It's a Wonderful Life'

COLLIERVILLE, TN (WMC) - For many, Christmas doesn't start until the family sits down to watch 'It's a Wonderful Life.'

With that in mind, Collierville is helping get the season started.

The city will show the classic movie in Collierville Town Square. You and your family can watch the classic amid the city's Christmas decorations while sipping hot chocolate, and talking to the woman who played Zuzu Bailey.

Judge Craig Hall and his wife Melinda opened their home to Karolyn Grimes, and they decorated their guest house like the fictitious town Bedford Falls.

"It's wonderful. It just makes Christmas special," Hall said. "I think it will swell every person's heart and give them much joy during this Christmas time."

Grimes is in the Mid-South sharing her life and the impact 'It's a Wonderful Life' made on her.

"It's all about how we touch each other's lives and how we make a difference," Grimes said.

Grimes will be at Collierville Town Square on Thursday night during a showing of 'It's a Wonderful Life.'

She'll be meeting and talking to fans from 7-9 p.m.

The event is free to the public!
