Get ready to break out the ruby slippers and follow that yellow brick road (by which I mean, Go Metro) to Union Station on Saturday, Dec. 20 for a free screening of silver screen classic The Wizard of Oz.
The screening will take place at 5 p.m. in the Historic Ticketing Hall, but you’ll want to arrive early — there will be a costume contest at 4:30 p.m. for those who want to dress in their Oz best. (So seriously, break out those ruby slippers…we’d also love to see a lot of green face paint, lions, tin men and scarecrows!) You’ll also be able to dine at food trucks before the movie starts.
Seating is limited, but TAP card holders will get preferential seating. Guests may bring food into the ticketing hall, but alcoholic beverages will not be allowed.
Union Station is accessible via Metro Rail, Metro Bus and several municipal bus lines. Use the Trip Planner at metro.net for routes and connections. Bicycle parking is also available on site.
The Wizard of Oz was released in 1939, the same year Union Station opened, and this screening is a finale to Union Station’s 75th anniversary celebration.
The program is produced in collaboration with Street Food Cinema.
