You see things you never saw better, when you see it on the big screen. So glad we went!

This movie will always be a favorite. It looked so good on the movie screen as well the sound was so amazing. I remembered seeing it with my family on TV when I was a young lad as this film gave me such joy of happiness. Always love the witches palace guards and the costumes. Judy Garland has such a beautiful voice and her performance was Outstanding as well the rest of the cast.

So much better than watching it on your TV with distractions all around. At least once, you should watch this on the big screen. I've seen this movie a gazillion and a half times, but I've never noticed the Tin Man, Cowardly Lion's, and Scarecrow's facial expressions before. It's well worth it to go to one of these screenings and be in the dark theater, alone with the world of Oz.

Great movie but the quality of the image was not what I expected. Poor focus and pale color.

So great to see it on the big screen with the volume turned up to match the size of the image.

We sat waiting for 20 minutes, then when something fast on the screen it was halfway through the open in black and white sequins. We then watch for another 5 minutes as we saw at Dish TV images flying across the screen, what look like a DVD being rewound, and finally after five or six minutes the movie star, halfway through the opening titles. We missed the pre movie discussion, as well as half of the Overture.

Movie was great, and to watch it on the Big screen will always be memorable. The only downside was the theater, seat are a little on the small size and jammed together.

This wonderful romp of a movie looks magical on the big screen: colors are a picnic for the eyes, details loom so clearly you can practically touch them and there's a sense of the larger-than-life with a film that's already larger than life.

Not only is it wonderfully entertaining, but the issues it addresses, and the way it presents them, are both universal and deeply personal. And therein lies The Wizard of Oz's true magic.

The Wizard of Oz remains the weirdest, scariest, kookiest, most haunting and indelible kid-flick-that's-really-for-adults ever made in Hollywood.
