Celebrating 30 Years of Summer Classics on the Big Screen!


The Wizard of Oz has permeated popular culture to such an extent that, even if they haven’t seen it themselves, most people know it almost by heart. It’s certainly true that they don’t make them like this anymore. It’s a musical, and it’s a fantasy story, and it’s a kids’ movie, and it’s a morality play about having inside yourself the things you want from the outside world. But it’s also kind of a road-trip movie — Dorothy, the Tin Man, the Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion make friends and get up to some crazy antics on the Yellow Brick Road. And it’s also kind of a disaster picture — the tornado scene thrilled and terrified audiences. And the moment of transition between black & white and color is maybe the most iconic single instant of film since directors started adding sound. We encourage you to bring somebody who’s never seen The Wizard of Oz to the Theatre. You might find something new in it yourself.
