See 'The Wizard of Oz' in IMAX 3D at the Carmike Valley Bend

The 1939 classic, "The Wizard of Oz," is back in theaters for one week only right now, and the special IMAX 3D version of the beloved family film is only playing in Huntsville at the Carmike Valley Bend. The limited release ends on September 26, 2013, so Judy Garland fans who want to see Oz on the big screen should hurry to catch the picture before it disappears.

The special revamped presentation is part of the movie's 75th anniversary celebration, which also includes a huge 5 disc collector's edition on Blu-ray and DVD arriving on October 1. The box set will include hours of special features, booklets, and other goodies for hardcore fans and will retail for just over $100.

Parents with young children should remember that "The Wizard of Oz" contains plenty of scary scenes, and an IMAX 3D version of the cyclone or the Wicked Witch of the West might be too much for the Munchkins in the house. For older children and adults, however, this is a wonderful opportunity to see the film as never before. Learn more about the original musical fantasy by watching the video at the top of this article.

The Carmike Valley Bend 18 is located behind the Valley Bend Target shopping center at 1485 Four Mile Post Rd. Both matinee and evening screenings of "The Wizard of Oz" are available. Tickets are $15 for adults and $12.50 for children and seniors.
