AFI Movie Club Launches Today!

Get ready to watch all the best classic movies with your friends, thanks to AFI Movie Club.

The Wizard of Oz is AFI’s inaugural film. Perhaps the most famous and best loved family film ever made, The Wizard of Oz stars Judy Garland as Dorothy, and features the #1 song on AFI’s Top 100 Songs and is #3 on AFI’s Top 100 Musicals

In this time when we are reminded “There’s no place like home,” AFI has created a global, virtual gathering of those who love the movies. Each day’s film – announced by a special guest – is accompanied by fun facts, family-friendly discussion points and material from the AFI Archive to enrich your viewing experience. If you ever wondered what Judy Garland’s daughters Liza Minelli and Lorna Luft thought about The Wizard of Oz the first time they saw it, then you’ll want to see this clip from the AFI Archive. WATCH NOW.

AFI hopes the AFI Movie Club brings some inspiration and entertainment during this time when it’s needed more than ever. As a non-profit, they are a member-powered organization, which depends on the support of movie fans like you. To support AFI Movie Club – and to allow them the ability to provide a sense of community to anyone who needs it – please consider becoming a member or donating.
