‘Wizard Of Oz’ To Display In 3-D

wizard_of_oz_2013Monkeys flying out of the movie screen? Munchkins standing 30 feet tall? Why, we never heard of such a thing. Then again, we’ve never seen The Wizard of Oz in 3-D on an IMAX screen.

That’s about to change starting Friday, for one week only when Dorothy, Toto and the yellow brick gang land in select theaters nationwide like a house on a wicked witch, looking and sounding better than ever.

The super-sizing is part of Warner Brothers’ marketing push for the Oct. 1 home video release of The Wizard of Oz 75th Anniversary Collector’s Edition, featuring a 3-D version and loads of extras.

The 1939 classic with the 21st century makeover will be shown at Baywalk in St. Petersburg, Veterans 24 in Tampa, Regency 20 in Brandon and Woodlands Square 20 in Oldsmar.
