Tue 28 January 2:30pm

Dir: Victor Fleming
Starring: Judy Garland, Frank Morgan, Ray Bolger
Judy Garland dazzles as Dorothy, a Kansas girl who is swept away in a tornado to the magical land of Oz. Here she meets some memorable friends and foes in her journey to meet the mysterious Wizard of Oz, who everyone says can help her return home. Winner of two Academy Awards, The Wizard of Oz is a timeless masterpiece. We are thrilled to be screening this with a fantastic installation alongside it.

We’re turning the Northampton Filmhouse and Royal & Derngate foyers into the merry old land of Oz! Bring the whole family for fun and games over the rainbow, as you journey through the haunted forest, create beautiful origami poppies and reach the gleaming Emerald City, all brought to life in our interactive installation. Recreate the magic of the film, as you turn the world from black and white to colour and float away in Glinda’s magic bubbles, before enjoying one of Hollywood’s most lovable and enduring musicals on the big screen.

The Screening on Tue 28 January at 2.30pm is a Dementia-Friendly screening. Dementia-Friendly screenings are open to all and offer people living with dementia, including young onset dementia, the chance to enjoy a classic film in a relaxed and supportive environment. 

Screening as part of BFI Musicals! The Greatest Show on Screen, a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery, BFI Film Audience Network and ICO.
