We're off to see the Wizard,
The wonderful Wizard of Oz
We hear the movie's better now
than ever the movie was..
If you're singing along, it's time to mark your calendar: The Wizard of Oz is celebration its 70th birthday by screening (in high definition!) in theaters across the country on September 23rd.
All screenings are at 7pm, and will include a documentary about the making of the film, "including archival interviews, behind-the-scenes footage and rare musical outtakes." (Spoiler: the musical outtake is most likely a dance number called "The Jitterbug," in which the Wicked Witch sends magical insects "jitterbugs" to make Dorothy and her friends dance; it was cut when studio execs thought the film ran too long.)
Tickets are available for pre-order here.
Another option: Netflix is streaming the high-definition Wizard of Oz free for members - for 24 hours only! - on October 3rd. After all, when it comes to watching your favorite movies, there's no place like home.
