” Ding Dong, The Wicked Witch Is Dead”. Seven of the most iconic words in cinematic history can be heard on the big screen tomorrow 1/14/2015. Thanks to TCM and Fathom Events the 75th anniversary of The Wizard Of Oz is being celebrated in select theatres nationwide one last time tomorrow.

It’s being shown here at Regal Cinema on Lincoln Road. My family and I went on Sunday to the 2pm showing and had a great time. Our little one had seen it on TV and VHS {Yup, VHS} before but like ourselves we had never saw it as it was meant to be seen. On the big screen. TV just doesn’t do it justice. It was filmed before TV even existed. It is being shown in the exact aspect/Film Ratio as it was in 1939. The colors bolder. The ruby slippers more shiny and well.. The witch more scary.

The musical score came alive in the cinema. We ate popcorn and sang along to almost every single song. Judy Garland was just 16 when the movie was made. I have a new appreciation for her genuine unmatched talent. I have always said if I ever meet a martian who landed on earth who asks me, ” what is a movie”?, I will simply play The Wizard Of Oz. After exiting the movie we were caught in a sudden rain shower while walking/running home. Once safely inside our house, my 3 yr old said “there’s no place like home”! And there is NOTHING better than the magical Wizard Of Oz.

On Tuesday, January 7, 2014, Stars Ice Cube, Kevin Hart, John Leguizamo, and producer Will Packer introduced a special advanced screening of Universal Pictures’ RIDE ALONG to Miami . Talent and filmmakers stopped to talk to press on the red carpet before greeting the audience inside of the Regal Cinemas South Beach, located at 1120 Lincoln Rd, Miami Beach FL. Radio station 103.5 The BEAT was also there to host event and giveaway movie swag to fans !

In this action-comedy, Ice Cube and Kevin Hart lead the lineup in Ride Along, the new film from Will Packer, the director and the producer of the blockbuster comedy Think Like a Man. When a fast-talking guy joins his girlfriend’s brother—a hot-tempered cop—to patrol the streets of Atlanta, he gets entangled in the officer’s latest case. Now, in order to prove that he deserves his future bride, he must survive the most insane 24 hours of his life.

I thought the chemistry between Ice Cube and Kevin Hart was good and didn’t seem forced. One of my favorite actors, Laurence Fishburne also makes an appearance in the film and delivers.This movie provided plenty of laughs, action and suspense to possibly have a sequel.
Ride Along opens nationwide January 17, 2014. For more information, go to www.ridealong.com !
