When a circus magician from Kansas is whisked away to a magical place, he must

learn who is good and who is evil.

This is the story of how Oz, the Wizard, came to be — and although it is rated PG,

I would strongly suggest parents preview the trailer first as there is quitea bit of

action and discussion of good vs. evil. 


From Up on Poppy Hill

(Movie Rating: PG)

March 15th

The story of how a group of Japanese teenagers save their school from being

demolished right before the 1964 Tokyo Olympics.

another stunning and touching story.
