Guests on the University of Charleston's riverfront lawn will take a trip down the yellow brick road during a free showing of "Oz the Great and Powerful" at 9 p.m. July 13.
Guests are invited to bring blankets and lawn chairs to the area closest to Eddie King Gym. Traditional movie drinks and snacks will be available for purchase.
The movie features James Franco as Oscar Diggs, a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics who is hurled away from Kansas to the Land of Oz. After meeting three witches, Oscar is drawn into the problems facing the inhabitants of Oz. He puts his magical arts to good use and eventually transforms himself into the powerful Wizard of Oz. Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams also star in PG-rated film, which runs 130 minutes.
The university is hosting the movie night as part of the Charleston Convention & Visitor's Bureau's "Gateway to Jamboree" initiative, which has coordinated several events around the city to welcome visitors attending the Boy Scouts of America National Scout Jamboree.
