There’s no place like home to watch the 80th anniversary screening of ‘The Wizard of Oz’

Grab your ruby slippers, because “The Wizard of Oz” is coming back to the big screen for the movie’s 80th anniversary.

Fathom Events is showing the classic in select theaters across the country, including New Orleans on Jan. 27, Jan. 29 and Jan. 30.

The movie stars Judy Garland, and became a international phenomenon.

Those who want to follow the yellow brick road can see the movie in these theaters around the New Orleans metro area:

  • AMC Westbank Palace 16 — 1151 Manhattan Boulevard, Harvey, LA
  • Regal Cinebarre Canal Place 9 — 333 Canal St, New Orleans, LA

In this classic musical fantasy, Judy Garland stars as Dorothy Gale, a young Kansas farm girl who dreams of a land “somewhere over the rainbow.”

Dorothy’s dream comes true when she, her dog, Toto, and her family’s house are transported by a tornado to a bright and magical world unlike anything she has seen before.

Unfortunately, she makes a mortal enemy of a wicked witch when the house falls on the hag’s sister. Now, befriended by a scarecrow without a brain, a tin man with no heart and a cowardly lion–and protected by a pair of enchanted ruby slippers–Dorothy sets off along a yellow brick road for the Emerald City to beseech the all-powerful Wizard of Oz for his help to return home.
