$5 Classic Movie Night | Paramount Theatre
Celebrate the 85th anniversary of one of America’s finest Art Deco treasures. Doors open at 6:30pm with free tours, historic displays and rare access to Paramount’s archive materials and free popcorn for the first 500 guests. Oh, and a screening of only like the best movie ever, The Wizard of Oz, all for just $5.
Brilliantly adapted from L. Frank Baum’s venerated children’s book and winning Oscars for Best Original Song, Best Original Score, Best Cinematography, and Best Picture, this beloved musical fantasy is the most watched movie in history.
More than 70 years since Judy Garland as Dorothy set out with The Scarecrow (Ray Bolger), The Cowardly Lion (Bert Lahr) , and The Tin Woodman (Jack Haley) along the Yellow Brick Road, the universal appeal of The Wizard of Oz remains undiminished.
