The Wizard of Oz has become one of the most treasured and beloved classic in entertainment history. To honor its 75th anniversary, the award-winning will take the big screen again for just one week.

The re-imagined and re-mastered film will make audiences feel as if they can touch the infamous ruby slippers, smell the aroma of the poppy field, and jump right onto the yellow brick road to dance along with Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Lion.
