Dorothy (Judy Garland) dreams of a place “over the rainbow,” and then discovers it when a tornado transports her and her dog Toto from Kansas to Oz, a magical world filled with fantastical creatures. With her new friends, she sets off for the Emerald City to beseech the all-powerful Wizard of Oz for his help to return home. Winner of three Oscars, WIZARD OF OZ remains one of the most beloved films yet made. (U.S., 1939, 112m)
“The weirdest, scariest, kookiest, most haunting and indelible kid-flick-that’s-really-for-adults ever made in Hollywood.” –Entertainment Weekly

“Her work is rooted and comfortable but her songs have a restless promise…” Jon Pareles, NY Times
“… somewhere between Tracy Chapman, Jackson Browne, and Bon Iver; it (Maze’s Freedom) is an uplifting anthem that bobs and brims with reawakened innocence and infectious optimism.”- Peter Aaron
