Special Cinema Screens: The Wizard of Oz
Films targeted at those living with special needs, such as Dementia, physical and mental challenges, their families and carers. Films will screen with lights on low level, with no adverts or trailers and the audience will be free to move around, or sing along to any musical number if they so wish. Complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits will be served before the film to give people the chance to meet and socialise, and to familiarise themselves with the venue.
When a tornado rips through Kansas, Dorothy and her dog, Toto, are whisked away in their house to the magical land of Oz. They follow the Yellow Brick Road toward the Emerald City to meet the Wizard, and en route they meet a Scarecrow that needs a brain, a Tin Man missing a heart, and a Cowardly Lion who wants courage. The wizard asks the group to bring him the broom of the Wicked Witch of the West to earn his help. An absolute masterpiece whose groundbreaking visuals and deft storytelling are still every bit as resonant, The Wizard of Oz is a must-see film for young and old.
“ Let's face it: Christmas just wouldn't be the same without a garish woolly jumper and a Technicolor trip down the yellow brick road…” - Stella Papamichael, BBC Movies
