THE WIZ (1978)

THIS JUNE... The Paradise Theatre is about to become the hottest discotheque in town! Join us as we dim the lights and roll out the dance floor for a pride month celebration of a genre and a movement. The Paradise Presents: DISCO SUMMER- six films that explore a subculture: the music, the fashion, and the revolution.

FROM THE BOOK THAT'S AN AMERICAN TRADITION..FROM THE SMASH-HIT BROADWAY SHOW...THE ENTERTAINMENT OF THE YEAR! For our next film of the series, we are paying tribute to one of the genre's greatest stars in the height of her disco era! Diana Ross takes on the iconic role of Dorothy Gale in a retelling of L. Frank Baum's classic tale, infused with a soundtrack of the era. Join us on June 18th for Sidney Lumet's version of THE WIZ!

When Harlem schoolteacher Dorothy (Diana Ross) tries to save her dog from a storm, she's miraculously whisked away to an urban fantasy land called Oz. After accidentally killing the Wicked Witch of the East upon her arrival, Dorothy is told about the Wiz (Richard Pryor), a wizard who can help her get back to Manhattan. As Dorothy goes in search of the Wiz, she's joined by the Scarecrow (Michael Jackson), the Tin Man (Nipsey Russell) and the Cowardly Lion (Ted Ross).
