Things We Love: The Wizard of Oz

From the July 19, 2012 edition

When I was little, the Wicked Witch’s legion of flying monkeys was so scary that I made my mom fast-forward through every monkey scene. But gosh, did I love the rest of “Wizard of Oz.” The idea of being taken away to a fantastical world, befriending a lion and owning those awesome red shoes — who wouldn’t love Judy Garland’s most famous movie? This week the Drexel Theater is showing the movie three times as a sing-along event, and the lyrics will be shown on the screen for anyone who needs them. Visit for details.
