I love the classics.
So it was a real treat when I learned that “The Wizard of Oz” was on the schedule for Midtown Crossing’s “Monday Night at the Movies” series in Turner Park.
Luckily for me, Turner Park happens to be my backyard.
So last Monday, I packed a blanket, some water and popcorn and went out to watch the movie with my cousin and her 9-year-old daughter.
It was shocking to me that the 9-year-old hadn’t seen “The Wizard of Oz” in its entirety.
I think I had more fun watching her watch the movie.
She bounced along happily when the munchkins welcomed Dorothy.
She laughed out loud when Dorothy slapped the Cowardly Lion.
She tensed up when the Wicked Witch kept Dorothy locked away.
That’s why I love the classic movies. They stand the test of time. The 1939 movie is one that my grandma watched, my mom and her siblings watched, I’ve watched, and now my cousins’ children are watching.
