Tuesday Movie: Wizard of Oz (1939)
Tuesday, January 22, 2019
Follow that yellow brick road… straight to the library! We will be showing the classic film The Wizard of Oz (1939), a movie with flying monkeys, talking scarecrows, and an adorable little dog.
When a tornado rips through Kansas, Dorothy (Judy Garland) and her dog, Toto, are whisked away in their house to the magical land of Oz. They follow the Yellow Brick Road toward the Emerald City to meet the Wizard, and en route they meet a Scarecrow (Ray Bolger) that needs a brain, a Tin Man (Jack Haley) missing a heart, and a Cowardly Lion (Bert Lahr) who wants courage. The wizard asks the group to bring him the broom of the Wicked Witch of the West (Margaret Hamilton) to earn his help.
This movie is intended for all ages. It is FREE and movie-goers may bring their own snacks and covered non-alcoholic beverages.
Movies are sponsored by the Friends of the DeKalb Public Library.
