Rochester, N.Y. -- The holiday season is a busy time of year at the George Eastman Museum, with many sights to see and activities to enjoy.

One of the annual favorites is the gingerbread house display, along with other sweet creations.

There's also a wreath display, music from a live pipe organ, a visit with Santa, Christmas film screenings and much more.

This year, the holiday celebration includes screenings of the Christmas classic It's a Wonderful Life. Two of the actors from the 1946 film are in Rochester for tonight's screening.

Jimmy Hawkins (Tommy Bailey) and Karolyn Grimes (Zuzu Bailey) will give a special introduction at 6:30 p.m. ahead of the 7 p.m. screening. Ashley Doerzbacher caught up with them this morning to hear some of their memories from working on the film.
