U.S, 1939, 102 min, 2K DCP, Dir. Victor Fleming, Rated G, MGM
Victor Fleming’s celebrated children's musical The Wizard of Oz plays at the Gables Cinema on Saturday & Sunday, October 10 & 11 at 11:00 am as part of our Family Day on Aragon series. Based on a book by L. Frank Bam, the film is about country girl Dorothy Gale (Judy Garland) who is swept away by a tornado (with her dog Toto) to the magical land of Oz. Dorothy embarks on a difficult journey back to Kansas where along the way she makes friends and one foe - The Wicked Witch of the West. Todd Mccarthy of Variety notes that The Wizard of Oz has “remained in the American cultural mythology for six decades now, and the answers to why they resonate more with deep meaning and feeling than with kitsch value to millions of people lie throughout this remarkable film.” This film is appropriate for ages 6 and up.
"A delightful piece of wonder-working." - Frank S. Nugent, New York Times
