There’s no place like the Open Space, and there’s certainly no better place to see a film with this much timeless enchantment, this much enduring magic, and this much fantastical splendor. After a tornado transports her to the extraordinary Land of Oz, Dorothy Gale (and her little dog, too) leaves a sepia-toned reality behind for a dazzling Technicolor daydream. But in order to return home, Dorothy must follow a yellow brick road, encountering munchkins, flying monkeys, a wicked witch, lions, tigers, and bears (oh my!) along the way. While oft reimagined and retold, there remains nothing in the cinematic canon that can top the breathtaking imagination and hopeful joy of Judy Garland transporting us somewhere over the rainbow and reminding us just how wonderful the movies can be.
