Calling all Wizard of Oz fans! Join us for a night of Oz fun as we discuss how L. Frank Baum’s classic children’s story was reinterpreted and re-imagined into the major motion picture that has captivated audiences for nearly 80 years. This film has influenced the twentieth-century conception of witchcraft since its release, leaving lasting tropes and archetypes in its wake!
Grab your ruby (or silver) slippers and join us at the Salem Witch Museum on Friday, August 3rd for a short lecture on all things Oz, followed by a screening of the film. Tickets will be sold at the door at $5 per person. Doors open at 7:45pm and the lecture will begin at 8:00, followed by an immediate screening of the film beginning at 8:30. All ages are welcome, and for this special event we will be offering free admission to anyone dressed in a Wizard of Oz costume!
