So, who won the drawing? I want to know who to feel jealous about.

I think there’s something going on in Central Park today related to the 70th anniversary of the Wizard of Oz.

It was magical and I’m so thrilled to have seen it in a theater!
There was a little girl all decked out in Dorothy attire. She was even carrying a little basket with a stuffed dog tucked inside!
Until last night, I never realized that Glinda had a huge silver moth on her shoulder. I’m pretty sure that is how she flew – the mutant moth carried her around.

Gahhh. High-def! That mean those dang flying monkeys are even scarier!

I saw it last night too and totally did not even notice Glinda’s moth. I guess if I can’t notice it on a huge screen in high def, there is no hope for my observational skills! I did see lots of ladies in either sparkly ruby shoes or a t-shirt with some cute Wiz of Oz theme. It was fun to see all the makeup in high def.

Still like Wicked WAY better than the WoOz

I saw the re-release last night too and ditto Tuli — it really was magical. I’ve only seen The Wizard of Oz on the small screen and was so happy to see it in a theater, in hi-def no less!

We saw it last night, too. The ruby slippers sparkled much more brightly in the darker scenes, like in the forest. I noticed the hairs growing out of the witch’s chin in her final scene. The audience we watched with really seemed to enjoy the Lion the most.
Bossy, hope that wasn’t my toddler behind you, who was up way past her bedtime and was good until the last 20 minutes or so. It would have been better if they showed the documentary after instead of before.

There’s something charmingly, bloggishly geeky about taking a photo of a movie where you’re sitting in the dark, watching it.

My niece and her daughter were at the same theater as you, they had a shot of the Tin Man.
when the movie was over, Little Dorothy asked if she could watch it again,,,LOL
