Come enjoy a holiday classic, "The Bishop's Wife", starring Cary Grant, David Niven, and Loretta Young (1947 B&W). Christmas bells are ringing, but Bishop Henry Brougham is missing the spirit as he desperately tries to raise funds for a new cathedral to the point of neglecting his wife. Only divine intervention can salvage the marriage. This witty and sentimental film will delight any audience.
