The Wizard of Oz

From FilmJunk.com

An old classic that’s getting another chance to shine on the big screen, and miraculously, in this case we’re not talking about a remake. Victor Fleming’s 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz turns 70 this year, and as a way of celebrating the event, Warner Home Video, NCM Fathom, and Turner Classic Movies are bringing it back to theatres next month. It will be a special one-night only screening of the remastered film in high-definition, along with a retrospective featurette called “To Oz! The Making of a Classic”.

Limited Edition @ Amazon!

The Wizard of Oz 70th Anniversary Ultimate Collector’s Edition also hits DVD and Blu-ray the following Tuesday (Sept. 29th).
