'Remembering Return to Oz' documentary coming to Indy

If you loved "Return to Oz" there's a new documentary out that will make you a fan all over again.

Celebrate the 38th anniversary of Disney's cult classic "Return to Oz" with a special showing of the documentary "Remembering Return to Oz."

It will be held April 2 at 7 p.m. at the Kan-Kan Cinema and Brasserie, 1258 Windsor St., Indianapolis 46201. The arthouse cinema is located near downtown Indianapolis.

The documentary was produced by award-winning independent filmmaker Aaron Pacentine, who owns Family Films Productions. The company is dedicated to making quality family entertainment. Originally from California, Aaron now lives in Indiana.

"'Return to Oz' has a special place in my heart," says Aaron. "There are a lot of fans who continue to love and respect the 1985 Disney film. This is one of the films that gets overlooked because it did so badly at the box office. As the years have gone by it has gotten a really large cult following.

"It is also interesting to note that Gary Kurtz’s last on-screen appearance was for this documentary. I am forever grateful to have him a part of this."

Actress Fairuza Balk, who played Dorothy in the film, appears in the documentary.

Producer Aaron Pacentine

Included in the evening will be:

* A Q&A With Producer Aaron Pacentine and local author/producer Landon Parks.

* Special "Return to Oz" guests from the 1985 film, to be announced.

* A "Return to Oz" social gathering with a themed cake.

* Gift prizes and giveaways, including original "Return to Oz" card packs and a Blu-Ray disc of the movie.

Seating is limited. Tickets are $12 and can be reserved here:
