There will also be a look into how L. Frank Baumís classic novel was transformed into one of the most beloved films of all time including archival interviews. There will also be behind-the-scenes footage and rare musical outtakes. There will also be an exclusive clip of the Scarecrow, Ray Bolger, dancing in High-definition for the very first time.

    If there are any local Theaters in your area that will be playing this you might still be able to get a ticket. If you want you might could try calling your local Theaters about this.

    I went to NCM's screening of Star Trek's "The Menagerie" episode a couple of years ago and enjoyed it. But I've since upgraded my home to HD and have pre-ordered the pricey deluxe Blu-ray set of "The Wizard of Oz." So for this, I'll pass and wait until I can see it at home. But I'm looking forward to see it. This trailer for the Blu-ray set really sold me.

    I took my mother to the screening. Oz is her all-time favorite movie. Aside from the intro from the AMC guy, the only extra we saw was the old Angela Lansbury mini-doc that's on the DVD.

    Thanks for the reminder. There were several theaters that only showed at 7pm, and I heard that sold out. Fortunately, the theater near my home had a 2nd showing at 10pm. That show was sold out, but would say about 25% filled, all adults.

    It was great to see it on the big screen for the first time. And it has been several years since I last watched it, and had forgotten certain parts of different songs, and some of the dialogue.

    Going to the movie house forces more focus. The dialogue at the beginning sepia-toned portion relates in many ways to what happens in the tecnhnicolor portion.
