“The Wizard of Oz” 3-D hits theaters for 75th anniversary

June 5, 2013

Well, this was bound to happen with the 75th anniversary coming up. THE WIZARD OF OZ (1939), in anticipation of its 75th anniversary in 2014, is slated for a big-screen re-release in September of this year, and it will screen in IMAX 3-D.

The film is said to feature an impressive digital upgrade in terms of sound and visuals, but the question remains whether fans will embrace the 3-D remastering or not. I’m all for seeing The Wizard of Oz in theaters as a part of its anniversary, but it’s only because I’ve never seen the film in theaters and it is one of my favorites.

The re-release kicks off a week-long engagement at IMAX theaters across North America on September 20th. On October 1st, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release a limited “The Wizard of Oz 75th Anniversary Collector’s Edition,” which features the new 3-D version of the film and more, including an all-new documentary on the 1939 production.
