I don't know about you, but if my house got sucked up into a tornado and dropped in some distant land, the last thing I would feel like doing is singing. But if it was 1939, that distant land was Oz, and I was seeing munchkins, witches and Technicolor for the first time, who knows what I would feel compelled to do. When Dorothy and her little dog Toto realize they're not in Kansas anymore, they embark on a quest down that magical yellow brick road to find the wizard and thus their way home. Along the way they run into scarecrows, tin men, talking lions and other such creatures that are probably the reason people don't let their kids go wandering alone in magic forests anymore. If you haven't seen it, there's really no excuse. If you have, you probably know all the words, so bring your best munchkin voice to the Inwood Theatre, 5458 W. Lovers Lane, for the midnight screening of the sing-along version of The Wizard of Oz. The lyrics will be onscreen so you can belt your heart out. Or if that's not your style, try loading Dark Side of the Moon onto your MP3 player, bringing some headphones and prepare to freak out. Visit
