Join us in our outdoor cinema on June 30th for the ultimate prog-rock/classic cinema crossover you never knew you needed. Doors at 8pm, Film begin at Sundown (8:33pm).
Celebrate the 50th anniversary of Pink Floyd’s influential prog-rock classic with a fun experiment in perception! Legend is that if you listen to the ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ while watching a silent ‘Wizard of Oz’, the two behemoths of culture align in perfect synchronicity, see for yourself in 3D!

For years an Urban Legend had circulated about the incredible synchronicities between two of the most beloved pieces of entertainment of the century. Dark Side of the Rainbow – also known as Dark Side of Oz or The Wizard of Floyd – is the pairing of the 1973 Pink Floyd album The Dark Side of the Moon with the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz. This produces moments of apparent synchronicity where the film and the album appear to correspond. Coincidence combined with the brain’s tendency to seek patterns in things, is a phenomenon known as apophenia, come experience it for yourself in Anaglyth 3-D! Glasses and popcorn provided!

It’s unknown who actually first synced the albums together, but it was Charles Savage who first brought this legendary mash-up to the public’s attention. In a piece for the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette back in 1995, Savage told the world when to press play on the CD and, in effect, provided us all with the first taste of The Dark Side of the Rainbow.

Tonight’s Audio/Visual Adventure will be Synced from 3rd roar of the MGM lion. One play of ‘Wizard of Oz’ with two and a half plays of ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ will create an experience guaranteed to make your spine tingle with disbelief, asking yourself Was this done on purpose? Or was it some sort of unexplained parallel of space and time that brought these two classics together? Put on your 3-D glasses, sit back, relax and see for yourself!

The Dark Side of the Moon‘s engineer, Alan Parsons, has often been asked whether the album was deliberately aligned with the film, something he very much denies. “There simply wasn’t mechanics to do it, we had no means of playing videotapes in the room at all. I don’t think VHS had come along by ’72, had it?” Needless to say, that hasn’t stopped plenty of theories surfacing about the similarities. Even Floyd drummer Nick Mason was asked about The Dark Side of the Moon: “It’s absolute nonsense,” replied the drummer. “It has nothing to do with The Wizard of Oz. It was all based on The Sound of Music.”

Join us for the 4th Summer Season of transforming the Epsilon Spires parking lot into an outdoor cinema!
About seating: We encourage our guests to come as if to a picnic – so please bring your own blankets, cushions or folding chairs – you want to be comfortable so bring all the coziness you need! Restrooms provided. In the case of rain or low temperature this event will be moved indoors into our Sanctuary.
