Description
Poor Dorothy Gale. The lost farm girl in the gingham dress clutching her runaway dog desperately pines for “a place where there isn’t any trouble.” Of course, that’s the movies! Especially when it’s her movie, seen under the stars surrounded by friends and family in Old Mill Park. The City of Mill Valley, the Mill Valley Chamber of Commerce, and MVFF invite you to a free outdoor screening of this timeless classic, whose Technicolor magic remains as bright and joyfully surreal as it was 76 years ago. Blue-faced flying monkeys? An acid-green witch leveling the scariest threat in cinema history? Chipmunk-voiced Munchkins with flowers on their toes? Kansas, this isn’t. But Dorothy finds her way with friends like Scarecrow, Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion. Like its unforgettable music and burnished sepia-toned opening, this movie’s tender glow never fades because, as its title card promises, “Time has been powerless to put its kindly philosophy out of fashion.”
