The Wizard of Oz celebrated the 70th anniversary of its theatrical premiere last month, and Wednesday 9/23, for one night only, the film screens in remastered HD at 20 area theaters —- in the city it's showing at River East, Webster Place and City North.

Inspired by Chicago's 1893 Columbian Exhibition to create the Emerald City, L. Frank Baum wrote the source novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in his Humboldt Park apartment. It was published by Chicago's George M. Hill Company in 1900.

This screening is a promotion for Warner Home Video's 9/29 remastered Blu-Ray and DVD release.
