BRATTLEBORO Latchis Theatre Grand Re-Opening - "Wizard of Oz": See this 1939 classic on the big screen, where it first was shown to Brattleboro audiences when the Latchis Theatre was not even a year old. It's ranked No 10 on the American Film Institute's list of the Top 100 American Movies of All-Time. Featuring Judy Garland as a plucky, young girl whose life is disrupted by a natural disaster, she finds herself plopped into a strange and surreal world when she embarks on a challenging journey aided by three friends. Together, they overcome all manner of challenges - and their own internal struggles - ultimately to learn that the power to handle things was within them all along. Those aspects of the tale really resonate with me in these tough times. And then there is the iconic line "There's no place like home." We at the Latchis chose those words to put on our marquee while we our closed in the hope that they might offer a little comfort and inspiration at a time when we were keeping to our homes. 7 p.m. Per local regulation, face masks are required in the lobbies and public spaces, and capacity in the Main Theatre is reduced to allow for proper distancing. Refreshments will be for sale. Regular admission applies (credit or debit card). Latchis Theatre, 50 Main St. Information: latchistheatre.com.
