Virtual Tour

Although filmed in Hollywood and set in Kansas, The Wizard of Oz has Chicago connections. 

In this short virtual tour, follow Chicago's yellow brick road to the spot where L. Frank Baum penned the children's book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Then, meander briefly through Evergreen Memorial Cemetery in Bloomington, IL, for more Oz stories.

Virtual Tour FAQs

How Do I Watch?

For virtual events on Facebook, YouTube, or Twitter, visit any of those pages at the scheduled time and click on the live video. For virtual events on Zoom, please register. On or before the day of the program, you will receive an email with a link to join.

Can I Get a Reminder?

For livestream events, if you follow Chicago Movie Tours on Facebook, YouTube, or Twitter and allow notifications on your device, you will be notified when we go live. If you'd like an email reminder, register for the event 24 hours before it begins.

Can I Watch Later?

Virtual tours may not be available after their livestream. Because Chicago Movie Tours' virtual events often include film clips that may trigger social media censors, Facebook, YouTube, or Twitter may remove the videos after the livestream, even though the material is considered fair use. In short: it's a good idea to watch live.
