The Wizard of Oz is one of my favorite movies, as I'm sure it is with most people. The closest theater it will be showing at for me is Cobb Theater in Merritt Island, FL. Just a few minutes away, so whether I win or not I won't miss this once in a lifetime chance.

April said...

My favorite character was always the Cowardly Lion, because he's hysterical. I still adore the part where they're walking down the long hall of the Wizards castle and he's playing with his tail.

luckysunset said...

The Regal Gainesville Cinema 14 will show the Wizard of Oz here in Gainesville, FL. It's a nice theatre with a friendly staff. I go there fairly often.
