The Wizard of Oz - 75 Years of Entertainment

"The Wizard of Oz" is one of my favorite movies. Growing up I never saw it in the theater. When it came out on TV, we only had Black & White. So imagine my surprise when I finally saw it change to color - "I've got a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore".
Trivia - Many of the Wicked Witch of the West's scenes were either trimmed or deleted entirely, as Margaret Hamilton's performance was considered too frightening!
"Over the Rainbow" was nearly cut from the film - that surely would have been a travisty.
To celebrate the 75th Anniversary of "The Wizard of Oz", it has been remastered in IMAX 3D and will have a limited One Week engagement starting on Sept. 20, 2013. I've already got it on my calender. Will you be going to see it?
