This beloved reimagining of THE WIZARD OF OZ stars Diana Ross as a Manhattan school teacher whisked away to an enchanted city. The only person in this magical land who can help her return home is The Wiz (Richard Pryor), so she sets off to find him with the help of the Scarecrow (Michael Jackson), the Tin Man (Nipsey Russell) and the Cowardly Lion (Ted Ross).

Screening begins at sundown. Lawn seating opens at 5 pm in Turner Park, located between Dodge and Farnam Streets along Turner Blvd. Monday Night at the Movies, sponsored by the University of Nebraska Omaha, will run throughout the summer.
