Offsite - Watershed: The Wiz (U) + Disco

Sunday 23 October 2016, 11:30 to 14:00

The grooviest adaptation of The Wizard of Oz you’ll ever see! Followed by a free disco.

We invite all the family to ease on down the yellow brick road with this special screening of The Wiz, the beloved Motown musical version of Dorothy's journey to the wonderful world of Oz. Diana Ross stars as Dorothy, a Harlem schoolteacher who is swept away to Oz in a magical snowstorm. She is told about the Wiz (Richard Pryor), a wizard who can help her get back home, and as she goes in search of him she's joined by the Scarecrow (Michael Jackson), the Tin Man (Nipsey Russell) and the Cowardly Lion (Ted Ross). With a brilliantly funky soundtrack from Quincy Jones, you'll be clicking your heels all the way to our disco.

After the film, head to a free all-singing all-dancing get together for Bristol kids and their families, inspired by the film's Motown, Disco and Soul soundtrack, with help with local turntablists!

Recommended age: 6+

Please note that this film is rated U. All ages welcome at the disco too!
