Join the Friends of the Fox for this 1939 musical classic on the big screen. Judy Garland plays young Dorothy Gale who is swept away with her dog Toto to the magical Land of Oz. Wanting to return home, Dorothy follows the Yellow Brick Road to the Emerald City to find the Wizard, hopeful he can help her. Along the way, she meets a Scarecrow, a Tin Man, and a Cowardly Lion, who hope the Wizard can help them, too.
“The Wizard of Oz” won two Academy Awards and was one of the inaugural 25 films added to the United States National Film Registry. The film, its music, quotes, and villain, are included in numerous American Film Institute 100 Years and Top 10 lists. "Over the Rainbow" is considered the best song in film.
Doors open at 1:00 PM. Dave Moreno plays a live concert at the “Mighty” Morton organ at 1:30 PM. Our master of ceremonies, Matías Bombal announces the movie at 2 PM. Friends of the Fox offer complimentary drinks and snacks, and a tour of the theatre after the film. Donations are greatly appreciated, and costumes are encouraged!
The Friends of the Fox is a volunteer, non-profit organization offering a monthly classic movie experience at the Bob Hope Fox Theatre. Founded in 1995, the Friends of the Fox supported the restoration of the Theatre through significant fundraising efforts. More than 25 years later, the organization continues to promote the Theatre as an integral part of the Stockton community and the “Crown Jewel” of downtown Stockton’s revitalization efforts.
