The Wizard of Oz

Recommended for ages 5 & up

featuring

Judy Garland, Frank Morgan, Ray Bolger, Bert Lahr,

What better activity for a Saturday afternoon in winter than a trip down the Yellow Brick Road together with Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion, and the Tin Woodsman? In a 35mm print that shows off its jewel-like colors and unforgettable music, this true classic has delights to beckon little munchkins and Auntie Ems alike to the theater (just don’t bring your little dog, too). The Wizard may be a sham, but the magic behind the movie curtain is real, and it endures.
