This year marks the 75th anniversary of "The Wizard Of Oz". I remember when I first saw it as a kid in the gym at Miller School in Utica. The Wicked Witch of The West is still the scariest witch of all time. The Rome Capitol Theater is showing this classic film (which is my daughter's favorite film, and she's an expert on the subject) this weekend.

Here are the details, according to romecapitol.com:
