Reminder: free Wizard of Oz screening at Union Station this Saturday

wizard of oz metro presentsGo 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 break out the ruby slippers…green face paint, lion tails, tin hats and scarecrow pants!) 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 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.

      • Most people have two eyes. All movies should be in 3D. There is no reason why we should be restricted to 2D. Flatties are a distortion of the way that we normally see.

        • Sorry, never going to be on the 3D bandwagon. I tried it a few times, got headaches every time. (Besides, I don’t want it to look like dragons are flying at me…unless dragons are really flying at me. Make dragons real, is what I’m saying.)
