Moonlight Movies: The Wizard of Oz

July 21 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The Mansfield Downtown Partnership’s Moonlight Movies series continues Friday, July 21 with a showing of The Wizard of Oz on Betsy Paterson Square. Activities begin at 7:00 PM, and the movie begins at dusk.

There will be fun activities for children on Paterson Square before each movie. Light refreshments will be available for purchase from the Partnership and the Mansfield Fire Fighter’s Association, and the UConn Dairy Bar Ice Cream Truck will be selling everyone’s favorite sweet treat.

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!
