See ‘The Wizard of Oz’ in Theaters for Judy Garland’s 100th Birthday

“The Wizard of Oz: Judy Garland 100 Years Over The Rainbow” comes to the big screen for two days only June 5 and 6.

The incomparable Judy Garland would be celebrating her 100th birthday this June and to honor this special occasion, Fathom Events and Warner Bros. are bringing her unforgettable performance in The Wizard of Oz back to cinemas for a two-day engagement.

The film will play in over 800 theatres nationwide on Sunday, June 5 and Monday, June 6 at 3 and 7 p.m. In Middle Tennessee, showings will be at AMC Thoroughbred 20 in Franklin, Regal Hollywood 27 in Nashville and Regal Opry Mills 20 in Nashville.

In addition to the full feature film, fans will be able to enjoy a rarely-seen extended musical number. In the scene, Ray Bolger (Scarecrow™) performs a dance routine that was cut from the original movie.

Tickets are available online at fathomevents.com or at participating theater box offices.

Adapted from L. Frank Baum’s timeless children’s tale about a Kansas girl’s journey over the rainbow, The Wizard of Oz opened at Grauman’s Chinese Theater on August 15, 1939. The film was directed by Victor Fleming (who that same year directed ‘Gone With the Wind’), produced by Mervyn LeRoy, and scored by Herbert Stothart, with music and lyrics by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg. Dorothy™ was portrayed by a 4’11” sixteen-year-old girl who quickly earned her reputation as “the world’s greatest entertainer”— Judy Garland. Ray Bolger appeared as the Scarecrow™; Bert Lahr as the Cowardly lion™, Jack Haley as the Tin Man™. Frank Morgan was seen in six different roles, including that of the wonderful “Wizard of Oz” himself.
