SummaryJoin us for a free movie on the last Sunday of each month at the Ballard Branch Library. Post-film discussion moderated by Scarecrow Video. Doors open at 1:15 p.m.
DescriptionThis month’s movie is The Wiz (1978), musical adventure fantasy film based on L. Frank Baum’s classic children’s novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz featuring an all-black cast. Dorothy is a 24-year-old Manhattan kindergarten teacher who is whisked away from her inner-city neighborhood via a snowstorm to the mysterious land of Oz. Oz is a sprawling, decaying, nightmarish, and dangerous megalopolis that resembles the physical characteristics of New York City. Directed by Sidney Lumet and stars Diana Ross, Michael Jackson and Nipsey Russell. Second film in our three-part “Musicals” movie series.
