The Classic – Wizard of Oz Shines Brightly on IMAX

“A heart is not judged by how much you love; but by how much you are loved by others.” – Wizard of Oz.  

Updated into IMAX 3D, The Wizard of Oz finds itself on the big movie screen with a fresh , enhanced look.  The movie stands alone as a classic.  The IMAX conversion only enhances the beauty of this film that is grounded in one of the most classic and beloved tales of several generations.

The fact that it’s original release was in 1939 has not faded the message and life lessons that permeates through the film with music, humor and wistfulness for all that we desire in our heart.


The talent of Judy Garland as Dorothy and her three cohorts , the Scarecrow ( Ray Bolger)  , the Tin Man ( Jack Haley)  and the Lion ( Bert Lahr)  is confirmed in their brilliant performances.  This is also goes for the Wicked Witch of the West ( Margaret Hamilton).

The sets are beautiful and the land over the rainbow fills the IMAX experience with 3D giving depth to rich images.

It is only playing in theaters this week. Don’t miss out . The Wizard of Oz is a timeless winner.

  1. Saw this on Friday evening…..was a very good transfer but it seemed to take away some of the magic. To me the movie has always been “fuzzy” but with the digital transfer to Imax it’s no longer fuzzy. It was so sharp that I was able to see the line on Lahr’s face where the prosthetic was applied….but at the same time you could definitely see the texture of Bolger’s burlap face – something I’d never seen before.

    The 3D was good, but I don’t know if it really added anything to the movie, other than subtle variations to the scene.
