USC’s Movies We Love series presents the misunderstood and underappreciated Return to Oz at 7 p.m. L. Frank Baum purists have always been somewhat divided on this 1985 follow-up, as it hews closer to the books while also suggesting that the land of Oz exists solely in Dorothy’s mind. Beyond that, this strange foray into the fantasy genre stands in sharp contrast to the 1939 film, mostly in a good way. A Q&A with co-writer/director Walter Murch and producer Paul Maslansky will follow the screening. Admission is free but an RSVP is required.

Fri., Feb. 13, 7-9 p.m., 2015
(Expired: 02/13/15)
