When Bossy was a kid, she loved watching The Wizard of Oz, except for Wizard who and Dorothy who because Bossy was all, “Where’s Toto?”
It was difficult for Bossy to concentrate on lions and tigers and bears oh my with little Toto running in and out of every scene at will.
While the world at large, across generations, enjoyed tin men and munchkins and flying monkeys — in technicolor — Bossy was consumed with worry over Toto and what he was doing offscreen. “Where’s Toto? Where’s Toto?” young Bossy repeatedly asked her parents until they lost all will to live and prayed for a sudden tornado to whip their high rise up and away.
One week from today, NCM Fathom, Warner Home Video, and Turner Classic Movies are celebrating The Wizard of Oz’s 70th anniversary with a high-definition release of the original film, which will be shown in only 440 movie theaters across the country.
In addition to the movie, the event will include stuff like archival interviews and behind-the-scenes footage. Bossy and her daughter are going and they can’t wait, where can’t wait equals they have to wait because the movie showing doesn’t take place until Wednesday Sept 23rd at 7 pm.
Here’s the deal: Bossy’s friends at NCM Fathom, Warner Home Video, and Turner Classic Movies want to give two tickets to one lucky Bossy reader. Just leave a comment below, one per person please, and Bossy will employ her friend the random number generator.
You may want to sneak a look at the list of participating theaters, first, to see if there is one convenient to you. Good luck!
