A very special family treat is coming up at Summer Pops as San Diego Symphony presents an outdoor screening of the restored classic 1939 Judy Garland movie* *_The Wizard of Oz_, featuring a live soundtrack performance by the Symphony as the film unspools. This special print of the Warner Bros. film contains dialogue, singing and sound effect tracks only, so it is up to conductor Randall Craig Fleischer and the Symphony to fill in the rest with the classic music of Herbert Stothart and Harold Arlen, exactly in time with the film. Exciting!
Bring the kids, bring the grandparents, bring everybody you can, and feel free to dress up as your favorite character for a Oz costume contest, sponsored by KPRZ radio. The Wizard of Oz screens at Embarcadero Marina Park South. Remember, there’s no place like home…and Summer Pops.
