Remastered Wizard of Oz

Remastered Wizard of Oz

'The Wizard of Oz' is undeniably a classic film... the birthplace of the current West End and Broadway hit 'Wicked'. But you have not truly experienced it until you have seen the amazing new 3d version now showing in Odeon IMAX at The Printworks.

I went along looking forward to revisiting this classic.. a film that has literally entered our very culture.. from 'Ding Dong The Witch is Dead' to 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow' ... but what I experienced I am sure would make Judy very proud indeed. The film literally came alive on the IMAX screen. The audience sang along to all of the songs that have become standards.. and laughed and 

gasped at the amazing campness of this legendary film... made all the more stunning now it has been transformed into 3D. 

I encourage all of you to go and enjoy this film where ever you can. it really is a treat.
