Loved it. I had forgotten the first 20 minutes of the whole movie, so it was a treat to see it again on the big screen & connect the Farm characters with the Wizard characters. The dialogue is much more advanced then what a child would be able...continued

Had a great time. Fun costume contest on stage & organizers brought an actress and also a man involved in the production of the film. The Alex theater is a great venue for viewings of old classic movies.

The actual film and singalong were wonderful! But I couldn't give it five stars (or, sorry, even four) because the event itself was poorly organized. It began extremely late; the speaker (while quite interesting and good) was appropriate for an...

It was great fun and I even won a basket in the raffle! What more could I want? Enjoyed seeing the folks that dressed up in costume and getting to not only sing along but recite lines along with the movie. We're not in Kansas anymore, Toto!!

I loved the entire experience from the beginning of the yellow brick road to Emerald City. The staff at Alex Theatre are always so friendly and nice. The theatre itself is just beautiful. I love seeing a classic cartoon before the show and to...continued

I was disappointed in the quality of the print. It was not at all what I expected. I have a DVD and a Blu ray at home that is much better. The sound wasn't great either. The seats are not comfortable. But despite all the negatives, my 2 nieces had...continued

I'd never been to the Alex which was beautiful as expected. A fairly modern and new looking restoration it seems. Staff/volunteers were very helpful and sweet even.
The cast member did not show as advertised by Goldstar. I understand she made...continued

I will preface this with two negatives, the first subjective the other objective. First, I don't much like sing-alongs, especially when they obscure two of the greatest solos in moviedom: Judy Garland's "Over The Rainbow" and Bert Lahr's "If I...continued

A lovely old theatre with an enthusiastic group of dedicated supporters helping keep it alive. The audience was energetic and enjoyed the evening. They had a few surprise guests who talked for a few minutes about the film which was a bit boring...continued

We had a great time, everyone seemed to be into the film with singing and booing (Wicked Witch). We hope the the Alex has more sing-a-longs or just more fun events like this one.
