“Wizard Of OZ” & “Gone With The Wind” Grand Lake Theater Oakland Sept 3rd-5th #LaborDay
The Grand Lake Theater Oakland, at Grand Avenue and Lake Park, will show two classics, “The Wizard of OZ” and “Gone With The Wind” this weekend, Saturday September 3rd through Monday September 5th. “The Wizard of OZ” will be shown each day during this Labor Day weekend at 4:45 pm; “Gone With The Wind” will be screened at 12 noon and again at 7:30 pm.
If you’ve never seen “The Wizard of OZ” , get over to The Grand Lake Theater Oakland. Here’s a description: Released August 25th, 1939, when a tornado rips through Kansas, Dorothy (Judy Garland) 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 (Ray Bolger) that needs a brain, a Tin Man (Jack Haley) missing a heart, and a Cowardly Lion (Bert Lahr) who wants courage. The wizard asks the group to bring him the broom of the Wicked Witch of the West (Margaret Hamilton) to earn his help.
And then there’s my favorite “Gone With The Wind”: Released in 1940, the epic Civil War drama focuses on the life of petulant southern belle Scarlett O’Hara (Vivien Leigh). Starting with her idyllic on a sprawling plantation, the film traces her survival through the tragic history of the South during the Civil War and Reconstruction, and her tangled love affairs with Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard) and Rhett Butler (Clark Gable).
