‘The Wizard Of Oz’ To Return To Theaters

It’s time to bust out those ruby red slippers because “The Wizard Of Oz” is coming back to theaters for a short time to celebrate its 80th anniversary!

More than 500 select theaters across the country will show the timeless classic on Sunday, Jan. 27; Tuesday, Jan. 29; and Wednesday, Jan. 30. While most of us have already seen the film (and if you haven’t, then you’re truly missing out on a classic Hollywood production), many of us have never had the opportunity to watch the Technicolor Land of Oz on the big screen.

Watching the movie in theaters will allow moviegoers to really experience the Land of Oz and Judy Garland’s “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” in surround sound. Those wishing to attend a screening can find out if a theater nearby is participating by visiting the Fathom Events website.

But in addition to seeing the film on the big screen, there will also be commentary from TCM prime-time host Ben Mankiewicz, whose grandfather, Herman J. Mankiewicz, was one of the screenwriters of the movie.

Just last year, data collected by a group of researchers from the University of Turin, found that “The Wizard of Oz” was the most influential movie ever made. The researchers analyzed 47,000 films across 26 genres and published their findings in Applied Network Science.
