The Wizard of Oz + intro
This year Towner is proud to work with Eastbourne Rainbow to present this special screening of The Wizard of Oz to celebrate LGBT+ History Month 2020.
Beloved gay icon Judy Garland stars as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, whisked away (with her dog Toto) from their home in Kansas, to the magical land of Oz. Following the Yellow Brick Road to the Emerald City to meet the Wizard, they befriend a Scarecrow that needs a brain, a Tin Man missing a heart, and a Cowardly Lion looking for courage.
The screening will feature an introduction from Dr Niall Richardson (University of Sussex), discussing the meaning of the film – and its star,
Judy Garland – for the gay community.
