The Wizard of Oz (1939) – 80th Anniversary Screening
Thursday May 30th
2019 marks the 80th Anniversary of a film widely regarded as one of the greatest of the 20th Century – The Wizard of Oz (1939).
To celebrate this, a screening of this dearly loved classic will return to the venue where the film was originally shown in Sheffield upon its release – the historic Abbeydale Picture House.
A Grade II listed 1920’s picture palace cinema, the Abbeydale Picture House is a landmark Sheffield venue that welcomed some of the most iconic films of the 20th Century.
When a tornado rips through Kansas, Dorothy (Judy Garland) and her dog Toto are swept away in their house to the magical land of Oz.
They follow the Yellow Brick Road toward the Emerald City to meet the Wizard, and on their journey they meet a Scarecrow that needs a brain, a Tin Man missing a heart, and a Cowardly Lion who wants courage.
A rare opportunity to see this classic film once again in one of the few venues to have screened it on its original release.
Doors open 6:30pm
Film starts 7:30pm
