Marquee Evening ...


“Follow the yellow brick road
Follow the yellow brick road
Follow, follow, follow follow
Follow the yellow brick road

Follow the rainbow over the stream
Follow the fellow who follows a dream
Follow, follow, follow, follow
Follow the yellow brick road

We’re off to see the Wizard
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
We hear he is a whiz of a wiz
If ever a wiz there was
If ever, oh ever a wiz there was

The Wizard of Oz is one because
Because, because, because, because, because
Because of the wonderful things he does
We’re off to see the Wizard
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz …”
           ~ “We’re Off To See The Wizard”
       ~ from the 1939 film “The Wizard of Oz”

The Wizard of Oz is a 1939 American musical fantasy film produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Widely regarded to be one of the greatest films in cinema history, it is the best-known and most commercially successful adaptation of L. Frank Baum's 1900 children’s book “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.”

Follow the yellow brick road – or in this case Nineteenth Street in Allentown, Pennsylvania – and you’ll see “The Wizard of Oz” is the star on the marquee of The Nineteenth Street Theatre on a late summer evening.

The Nineteenth Street/Civic Theatre is an historic community center that hosts theatre, arts education and film. It is the oldest cinema in Allentown, opening Sept. 17, 1928. In July 1957, the property was purchased by Allentown’s Civic Little Theatre. It is located in the heart of the quaint West End Theatre District.
