darksideofoz7302012Ranked as the No. 1 fantasy movie of all time by the American Film Institute (AFI), “The Wizard of Oz” continues to enthrall more than 75 years after its initial release. A great movie for the entire family, it has also proved especially popular with Pink Floyd enthusiasts. The masterful musical starring Judy Garland as Dorothy will be screened Friday in the South Florida Museum’s Bishop Planetarium, a longtime favorite among Floyd fans.

They will be the ones, by the way, with their iPod set to "Dark Side of the Moon" and hitting play on the third roar of the MGM lion. If you've never experienced the so-called "Dark Side of the Rainbow," the synchronicity of it all definitely gets a bit trippy. Beer and wine, as well as soft drinks and snacks,  available for purchase.

6 p.m. Friday; South Florida Museum, 201 10th St. W., Bradenton; $5, $3 (member admission); 746-4131; southfloridamuseum.org.
