The Wizard of Oz is making a grand comeback to the big screen for its 80th anniversary.

Movie theaters in North Charleston and Summerville will let you take in the classic on the following dates: January 27, 29 and 30.

The film originally was released on August 25, 1939.

Dorothy Gale, a young farm girl from Kansas is sucked up into a tornado with her dog Toto and transported to a magical world unlike anything she has ever seen before.
