70 years ago, a movie hit the silver screen that showed off new techniques in film-making and told a story that excited the imagination. No, ‘Star Wars’ hasn’t been around that long, but the ‘Wizard of Oz’ has and it stills delivers.
The colorful characters and unforgettable songs of The Wizard of Oz come alive as never before as the cinematic treasure is brought into the digital age with this entirely re-mastered Hi-Def presentation. Celebrating its 70th Anniversary, The Wizard of Oz originally opened at Grauman’s Chinese Theater in 1939. It received five Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, and captured two Oscars® -- Best Song (“Over the Rainbow”) and Best Original Score -- plus a special award for Outstanding Juvenile Performance by Judy Garland. Its magical story and heartfelt performances have enabled it to grow from a perennial classic to its current status as a treasured icon of popular culture.
Show starts at 7pm here, but check out the site to be sure about your theater.
