The Wizard of Oz at Majestic Theatre
Brentney Hamilton Recommends
We’re not in Oak Cliff anymore, Toto. The Texas Theatre, a historic landmark located west of the Trinity River, has partnered with the Majestic Theatre to host a special screening of the 1939 classic film, 'The Wizard of Oz,' in downtown Dallas. This iconic cinematic masterpiece — Roger Ebert listed it as one of his Great Movies — was the eighth film adaptation to feature the fantastic setting of Frank L. Baum’s 1900 children’s novel, 'The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.' This version’s striking use of cutting-edge Technicolor cinematography and unforgettable musical soundtrack drew a remarkable distinction from its predecessors. The technology thrilled contemporary audiences during the Great Depression, but the story’s popularity has endured for nearly 80 years. This screening offers a chance to introduce your next generation to its classic beauty at the Majestic, one of Dallas’ oldest and most classically beautiful venues.
