It's easy to forget that Frank Capra's 1946 Christmas classic, "It's a Wonderful Life," was initially a modest flop. The heartwarming film starring Jimmy Stewart as a despondent everyman saved by an unlikely angel became a cultural touchstone only after countless TV screenings. Now the Egyptian offers a chance to see it on the big screen in all its glory. Egyptian Theatre, 6712 Hollywood Blvd., L.A. 7:30 p.m. Thu. $11. (323) 466-3456. http://www.americancinematheque.com.
