CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Wizard of Oz is one of the most legendary films in film history, and the folks over at Alamo Drafthouse are going to celebrate that this weekend.

The movie is actually turning 80 years old.

"Few films have stood the test of time like THE WIZARD OF OZ," their event page says, "It’s funny. It’s scary. It’s awe-inspiring. And it features some of the most beloved songs in movie (and music) history. So when we realized the film is about to celebrate its 80th anniversary, we knew we couldn’t let that milestone pass us by without throwing a Movie Party."

Oz-heads who attend the event can expect ribbon wands, lollipops (guild-approved), bubbles, and an "if I only had a brain trivia" before the movie. Feel free to dress up as your favorite character.

The party starts Saturday, August 3, around 7:30 pm at the Alamo Drafthouse in Corpus Christi, Texas.
