7/21/2017 - July 21: Moonlight Movies: The Wizard of Oz

Moonlight Movies

This popular movie series hosted by the Mansfield Downtown Partnership is back for its second year with an expanded schedule! Enjoy family-friendly movies outside on Betsy Paterson Square twice a month in July and August. The movies are free and open to all ages.

Join us for fun activities prior to each movie! The fun begins at 7:00 PM; the movies begin at dusk.

Friday, July 21 - Wizard of Oz

 

The Wizard of Oz is rated G and has a run time of 1 hour and 42 minutes.

L. Frank Baum's classic tale comes to magisterial Technicolor life! The Wizard of Oz stars legendary Judy Garland as Dorothy, an innocent farm girl whisked out of her mundane earthbound existence into a land of pure imagination. Dorothy's journey in Oz will take her through emerald forests, yellow brick roads, and creepy castles, all with the help of some unusual but earnest song-happy friends.

FUN AT SEVEN; MOVIE AT DUSK
Join us for fun activities hosted by Mt. Hope Montessori School and the Mansfield Community Center and face-painting starting at 7:00 PM. The Mansfield Fire Fighter's Association will have water for sale, the Partnership will have fresh-popped popcorn available for purchase, and the UConn Dairy Bar Truck will be parked next to Paterson Square.

DINNER & A MOVIE
The creative culinary minds at Dog Lane Café are cooking up special menu items for each movie night! Enjoy dinner before the movie, then walk across the street to Betsy Paterson Square for the fun and film!

The menu for Wizard of Oz features "It’s a Twister Antie Em” - Twist up some Bucatini Pasta with Shrimp, Garlic, Spinach & Tomatoes. Try finding that in Kansas!
