The 1939 award-winning film (Best Score and Best Song Academy
Awards) is a perennial favorite that has been meticulously
restored. The Pitzer Center provides comfortable seating and
great sound for this Technicolor classic.
A young farm girl and her little dog are magically transported
into the enchanted land of Oz via a Kansas tornado. As they
travel down Oz’s Yellow Brick Road to find the Wizard and ask
him to send them home, they encounter a wonderful, funny,
terrifying and, ultimately, enlightening group of characters,
human and otherwise.
The film is based on the book The Wonderful Wizard of
Oz, first published in 1900 and written by Frank
Baum. Judy Garland, Ray Bolger, Jack Haley, Bert Lahr, and
Margaret Hamilton star in this film.
