Share on Nextdoor

When was the last time you visited the Land of Oz?  Awhile?  And when did you last see it in stunning High Definition, in theaters no less.  That's right, never.  On September 23rd at 7pm you'll have your first opportunity to do just that.  Check out the press release below:

NCM Fathom, Warner Home Video and Turner Classic Movies present The Wizard of Oz 70th Anniversary Hi-Def Event featuring the first ever High Definition presentation in movie theatres nationwide of The Wizard of Oz.  This One Night Event will take place in over 440 movie theatres nationwide on Wednesday, September 23rd at 7:00 p.m. (local time).  In addition to the feature presentation of The Wizard of Oz, this exclusive event will include 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. Also featured will be an exclusive clip of the Scarecrow, Ray Bolger, dancing in High-definition for the very first time.

Locally you can check out the ultra rare spectacle at the Citrus Park Mall or at AMC Woodlands Square in Oldsmar and other local theaters.  Purchasing tickets in advance is recommended and you can do so here.

The Rabid One will be in attendance and will have a full review of the event.

Stop by and say hi.  I'd say I don't bite but it's half the fun.
