Astra Theatre to Screen *Wizard of Oz* on June 2

Jasper ((NNDC) –  The 1939 classic *Wizard of Oz* will be screened at the historic Astra Theatre on Saturday, June 2, 2018, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8 and can be purchased in advance online  (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/ wizard-of-oz-tickets-42040481211) or at the door.

The Greater Jasper Downtown Business Association (the Downtown Merchants) is sponsoring the presentation. The evening screening is part of the Jasper Community Arts Commission’s 15th annual “Chalk Walk Arts Festival” event earlier that day—a one-day event that includes chalk/pastel murals, hands-on activities, and demonstrations. The first 100 Chalk Walk registrants will receive a $1 off coupon for the evening showing of *Wizard of Oz*.

For more information or to register for the Chalk Walk, visit the Art Center’s site at www.jasperindiana.gov.

Widely considered to be one of the greatest films in cinema history, the *Wizard of Oz* is, perhaps, most notable for its use of Technicolor, fantasy storytelling, its musical score, and memorable characters. Not surprisingly, it has become an icon of American popular culture.
