The Wizard of OzU

Directed by Victor Fleming | USA | 1939 | 1h 42m | Starring Judy Garland, Margaret Hamilton, Bert Lahr, Ray Bolger, Jack Haley.

A tornado tears through the black-and-white world of Kansas whisking Dorothy (and her dog Toto) to the magical, technicolour kingdom of Oz. Realising that there’s no place like home, she follows the Yellow Brick Road to the Emerald City – with the help of a scarecrow, a tinman, and a lion – so that she can return to her life in Kansas. However, The Wicked Witch of the West is determined to stop their adventure. A masterpiece of 1930s cinema that remains a cornerstone of American cultural history thanks to its memorable characters and magnificent songs.

Reviews

‘One of Hollywood’s quintessential productions, this musical adaptation of L Frank Baum’s classic fable is probably the most beloved fantasy film of all time and the ultimate family picture.’

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
