The Wizard of Oz revamped at London book launch

Published: Monday 15th of December 2008

An exciting new illustrated edition of The Wizard of Oz is to be launched with a special screening at a top London cinema on December 21st.

The Curzon Soho will show the cinematic classic with a special introduction by Graham Rawle, who has created some stunning and innovative illustrations to complement the original Frank L Baum story.

A tea party and discussion will be held at 15:00 at the prestigious London cinema before the screening begins at 16:00.

The Wizard of Oz is an all-time family favourite but many critics and commentators have pointed to the darker undertones of the film, such as a series of perceived correlations when the film is played in sync with the Pink Floyd album Dark Side of the Moon.

Graham Rawle is a respected illustrator and is perhaps best known for his Lost Consonants series, which ran in the Guardian newspaper for over 15 years.

LondonPass holders can enjoy a free ticket to see a film at the Curzon Soho on Monday to Thursday (except Bank Holidays) anytime and on Friday to Sunday (plus Bank Holidays) for all performances starting before 17:00.
