Drive on up the "yellow brick road" to Manhattan Beach parking lot as we screen “The Wizard of Oz” (Rated G), This 1939 classic unfolds when a tornado rips through Kansas,  whisking away Dorothy (Judy Garland) and her dog, Toto to the magical land of Oz. As they follow the Yellow Brick Road toward the Emerald City to meet the Wizard, they meet a Scarecrow (Ray Bolger) that needs a brain, a Tin Man (Jack Haley) missing a heart, and a Cowardly Lion (Bert Lahr) who wants courage along the way. The wizard asks the group to bring him the broom of the Wicked Witch of the West (Margaret Hamilton) to earn his help and get Dorothy home.
