Houston! We're Off To See The Wizard At This Month's Houston Alamo Kids Club!
We debated for quite some time about what film we would show for Thanksgiving at the Houston Alamo Kids Club. Ideas came and went, and we tried to square away some pretty terrific movies that we'll hopefully be able to show next year. But when it comes to great family films to celebrate the holidays with, they don't get bigger than THE WIZARD OF OZ. I've seen it, oh, probably about 20 times. I'm sure that's nowhere near the record, either - whenever it played on television when I was a kid I made it a point to watch. It's still probably the greatest fantasy film of all time, full of whimsy and beauty, and we will be playing it this Saturday as part of the Houston Alamo Drafthouse Kids Club, co-sponsored by Ain't It Cool News and 8th Dimension Comics and Games.
No gimmicks with this screening - just one of the greatest films of all time, projected on the big screen, for families to savor and enjoy. We're screening it at 11:00 AM, this Saturday, at the Alamo Drafthouse Mason Park, and if you've never seen THE WIZARD OF OZ before (how that's possible I can't begin to guess, but I'm certain there are many kids who have never experienced it) this is the perfect way to see it. I myself have never seen it on the big screen before, so this will be a special treat. As always, the Houston Alamo Kids Club is free and we invite you all to come. Information available here!

reports from Raimi's Oz movie. A coworker quit a few months ago, because he was hired as an extra (the guy stood about 6'8", I think cast for a palace guard). And I know they've been shooting for months..so where's the scoop?

I've seen a few little tidbits from Raimi's film around the web but nothing here or over on CHUD. Strangely, the geek sites didn't even report that Bruce Campbell's part had been cut.
