Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Mar 10th at 4:30 for Oz the Great and Powerful at the Regal Gallery Place . Look for Brian A. wearing a bow tie in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
