Seeing “The Wizard of Oz” on the big screen also offers an opportunity to consider the incredible special effects, considering the film was shot more than seven decades ago, long before computer-generated imagery. The black-and-white scenes of Dorothy battling against the wind as a twister approaches are especially transporting. And Toto’s impressive training all but ensures that another generation of kids will be clamoring for a Cairn terrier. The only negative aspect of getting such a close look at the film is that some of those special effects fall apart under close inspection. The Wicked Witch’s green face looks more like makeup, and the quick cuts that allow the legs of the witch’s dead sister to curl up and disappear under Dorothy’s house are more noticeable.

Organizer Linda Yemoto says this is the Storytelling Association of California’s 30th and final weekend-long, multicultural event. “We’re having a hard time finding young people to do the work,” she says about the volunteer-run operation. “We decided at our 27th that we’d continue to our 30th and hope there’d be young people to shadow us and put in the hours to keep it going.”. The festival moved to Orinda after being held for many years in El Sobrante’s Kennedy Grove amphitheater, and briefly at the Craneway Pavilion.
