First up is the 80th Anniversary screening of The Wizard of Oz (1939) starring Judy Garland –  the classic story of Dorothy Gale, a young girl who dreams of more than her life on a small Kansas farm, who suddenly finds herself whisked away by a tornado to the magical world of Oz. Unfortunately, her arrival makes her the enemy of The Wicked Witch of the West. Dorothy sets forth with the help of her new friends: a scarecrow, a tin man, and a cowardly lion, in the search for the great Wizard of Oz and a way back to Kansas.
