Event description
The Frida Cinema kicks off its Classics on French Street series of free outdoor movies with the beloved 1939 classic THE WIZARD OF OZ!

About this event

Grab your blankets, coolers, and low-back chairs, and join us on Thursday, January 20th, 2022 as we convert a Downtown Santa Ana street into an outdoor cinema to present one of the greatest musical films ever made, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer’s 1939 fantasy adventure, The Wizard of Oz! Film starts at 7:30pm; street will be open to guests at 6:30pm!

Judy Garland plays Dorothy Gale, a young Kansas farm girl who, along with her little dog Toto, is swept away by a tornado, only to wake up in a magical, Technicolor wonderland. Joining forces with their new friends the Tin Man, Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion, Dorothy and Toto set off on a journey down the Yellow Brick Road to find the all-powerful Wizard of Oz, defeat the Wicked Witch, and find their way home!

This will be the first of six outdoor screenings which will be presented the Third Thursday of every month from January to June, on Downtown Santa Ana's French Street and Calle Cuatro Plaza, between 4th and 5th Streets, right around the corner from The Frida! Our Classics on French Street is being provided to our community free-of-charge thanks to generous support from the City of Santa Ana and Community Engagement!

Let us know you're coming! Please RSVP!

PARKING

Parking is available in the City of Santa Ana's four-story parking structure located at 300 E. 5th Street. Standard parking rates will apply.

WHAT NOT TO BRING

Alcohol and smoking are prohibited. Please be courteous to your fellow audience members — if you are planning to bring chairs, bring LOW-BACK chairs so as to not block the folks behind you.
