Wizard of Oz ReReleased to Theaters

It’s been 70 years since The Wizard of Oz took patrons down the yellow brick road.

September 23rd fans will get the chance to see the film on the big screen just like they did nearly three quarters of a century ago.

Screen Crave shares:

The Wizard of Oz has an important place in history not just because of it’s box office success, but because of the effect it had on general public during the hardest economic crisis this country ever encountered.

The Wizard of Oz debuted in theaters in 1939 amidst the Great Depression in the United States. World War II was in the infancy stages and the country was wiped out by poverty. People needed escapism at that time more than ever. Dorothy, Toto, The Scarecrow, The Tin Man, and The Cowardly Lion all took audiences on a much needed trip down the yellow brick road.

The last time the film was re-released in theaters was in 1955, and while re-releases rarely make financial sense, but this is one of those events that make perfect sense.

I hope it is screened somewhere near me so I can see this on the big screen myself.
