Don't miss this last chance to see this family classic on the big screen! In addition to the feature presentation of The Wizard of Oz, this event includes a special introduction by Robert Osborne, a classic film historian and host of Turner Classic Movies, followed by "To Oz! The Making of a Classic," a look into how L. Frank Baum's classic novel was transformed into one of the most beloved films of all time including archival interviews, behind-the-scenes footage and rare musical outtakes. The presentation of The Wizard of Oz for this event has been enhanced to its maximum potential using the original film source material from over 70 years ago and kept in 4x3 format to preserve the OZ experience as first seen by audiences in 1939.
