Queensborough Community College will host a sing-a-long event to 1939’s “The Wizard of Oz” this weekend.
The film will screen at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday at the Queensborough Performing Arts Center, located at 222-05 56th Ave. in Bayside.
The event, which is sponsored by Councilman Daniel Dromm, D-Jackson Heights, encourages audience participation via subtitles to sing along with the classic film starring Judy Garland.
“We know that audiences everywhere are singing and dancing along to their favorite movie musicals,” said Susan Agin, executive and artistic director at Queensborough’s performing arts center. “So, we’ve decided to put together a special film series to give moviegoers another way to enjoy their favorite movies. Here, the crowd sings along without an ounce of apprehension.”
In the spirit of Halloween, Agin said the performing arts center is also encouraging attendees to don costumes.
All seats are $5. Trivia contests and other activities will be held prior to the screening.
The most enthusiastic participant will win a $100 cash prize.
Tickets can be purchased by calling 718-631-6311 or at the performing arts center’s website.
