We know you have watched it with the volume down while blasting Dark Side of the Moon, but have you seen The Wizard of Oz on the big screen? The Miami International Film Festival and Miami Dade College are offering up the winged monkeys, munchkins, and psychedelic dreamscapes to kick off the first annual Summer Fun Film Series. Strap on your ruby slippers, stuff some hay into your overalls, and ease on down the road (oh, wait, thats The Wiz) to win a prize in the costume contest. If the sound of the evil Miss Gulchs wicked cycling music still sends you scrambling to hide behind the couch, maybe youd prefer to hold out for other films such as Winged Migration or an advanced screening of the new CGI-animated feature Barnyard. Beauty school dropouts and those whove indulged in some Summer Lovin wont want to miss Grease. And aging hip-shakers can celebrate the 50th anniversary of Elviss appearance at the Gusman with Clambake. Tonights screening begins at 7:00 at the Gusman Center for the Performing Arts. Tickets cost $7.50, $6 for members and sponsors. Call 305-237-FILM, or visit www.miamifilmfestival.com for a complete schedule.
Thursdays, Fridays. Starts: July 27. Continues through Aug. 4
