August 17

August 17

Sat Aug 17 at 2 PM

The Lincoln Theater proudly presents the screen’s most beloved family classic…for one day only.

Grab your ruby slippers and bring the kids – we’re off to see the Wizard!

Judy Garland takes us somewhere over the rainbow with the Tin Man, Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion, and Toto, too.

Dress up as your favorite Oz character and celebrate the film’s 85th birthday at this special matinee, featuring an introduction by our Classic Film Club host Jeannie MacDonald…and more surprises.

(Don’t miss it – or we’ll have to send the flying monkeys after you)!

Young Dorothy Gale and her dog Toto are swept away by a tornado from their Kansas farm to the magical Land of Oz, and embark on a quest with three new friends to see the Wizard, who can return her to her home and fulfill the others’ wishes.

Running Time: 1 hour, 41 minutes
