The Wizard of Oz (U)

Family Film Club

Dorothy, the lion, the tin man and the scarecrow cower before the wizard

Come along with Dorothy for an evergreen adventure, in one of the most sumptuous Technicolour musicals ever committed to film.

In Kansas, Dorothy (Judy Garland) and her loyal dog Toto are bracing themselves for a tornado...and wake up in a colourful world of witches, flying monkeys and the yellow brick road. 

To get back home, Dorothy must travel to Emerald City, with her friends the Scarecrow (who needs a brain), the Tin Man (who needs a heart) and the Cowardly Lion (who needs courage). But will the Wicked Witch of the West stop them?

Recommended age 5+

Adults can only come if they’re bringing a child, and children can only come along if accompanied by an adult. If you’re over 18, we’re afraid being a ‘big kid’ doesn’t count.

Booking is essential. Unless or until guidance changes, six people or two households of any size can visit together as a group, so we’ve created socially-distanced clusters. Please only sit directly beside someone from your household or support bubble, and avoid moving seats when you arrive, so we can keep a safe distance between you and other groups.

All audience members over 12 years old need to wear a mask for the whole event (apart from if excempt or when eating and/or drinking).

Before the film, the Cinema Café will be open serving food and drink, although the cinema foyer seating area won’t be available at the moment, to allow for social distancing.
