Calcasieu Parish spokesman Laura Heller describes for us what the movie is about,

This movie is a timeless classic where Dorothy played by Judy Garland and her little dog Toto, are magically transported via tornado to the Land of Oz.


There, the duo makes some new friends and they all embark on an adventure to meet with the Wizard of Oz to ask for his help in sending Dorothy back home to Kansas. This movie is Rated G.

The movie will begin at 6:30 pm at Prien Lake Park which is located at 3700 West Prien Lake Road in Lake Charles.

If you are planning to attend this FREE event, you are encouraged to bring your own blankets, lawn chairs, and food. Now there will be vendors on location in case you forget your goodies and the Police Jury will also be handing out free popcorn and cotton candy.
