70th Anniversary of Wizard of Oz in Hi-Def! Nationwide, 1 night only September 2, 2009

Put on your ruby-red slippers and pack up your munchkins–The Wizard of Oz is celebrating its 70th anniversary with a one-night high-def event in movie theatres across the nation.

This special one-night event will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 23rd at 7:00 p.m. at several local theatres nationwide.  The unforgettable cultural icon has been entirely re-mastered and will be shown in movie theaters for the first time ever in high definition in a historic big-screen event that celebrates the 70th anniversary of “The Wizard of Oz.”
Introduced by Robert Osborne, classic film historian and host of Turner Classic Movies, Osborne will share facts and stories about this ageless classic. This special in-theater event will also include an  exclusive cut of “To Oz! The Making of a Classic,” which will offer audiences a unique peek into the Land of Oz through interviews with original Munchkin actors; an audio outtake of “If I Only Had a Brain” with Ray Bolger and July Garland, complete with stills and home movie footage; and a look at how the MGM artists and craftsmen created the music, costumes and amazing special effects for “The Wizard of Oz” in the 1930s.
