wizard of oz in ocon

Last Thursday for Oconomowoc's last Moonlit Movie of the season, The Wizard of Oz was shown. We rode our bikes downtown and walked around as many families were setting up their lawn chairs in the street waiting for the movie to begin. 

[I should point out for you history nerds out there, that back in August of 1939, The Wizard of Oz premiered in Oconomowoc at the Strand Theater, days before the Hollywood premier. This year marks the 75th anniversary of the premier, so it only made sense for Moonlit Movies to show it.]

Different businesses had Wizard of Oz decorations / memorabilia in their windows. There were green christmas lights adorning almost every building and fake lollipops tied to the streetlights. On the opposite end of where the big screen was set up, there was a band, Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, playing music. 

We stuck around for the beginning of the movie and then headed back home. It does make me want to watch the movie again in its entirety [or actually I really want to watch Return to Oz!], but it had been a long week and we had some episodes of @Midnight and The Soup to catch up on.
