Sonora Opera Hall


The 2nd Saturday Art Night Committee and the Sonora Chamber of Commerce are excited to bring to downtown Sonora a new event, FRIDAY FLIX @ the Opera Hall.
You may have seen these movies…but not like this! This will be an INTERACTIVE movie experience.

We begin this series on January 12th, with a classic movie from 1939, The Wizard of Oz. “Notable for its use of Technicolor, fantasy storytelling, musical score, and memorable characters, it has become an icon of American popular culture. Widely considered to be one of the greatest films in cinema history.”

How do you make a movie interactive? When you enter the “theater” you will be given a program and the first 50 people get a goodie bag. This movie has iconic songs, (words in the program) so why not sing along! The bag contains a flag to wave every time someone says Dorothy’s name. The wicked witch enters the scene, boo…hiss. This is just the beginning!

We invite our participants to come dressed as your favorite character. There will be a costume contest with great prizes for the top 2 winners. You will be the judges.

The movies chosen for this series were chosen their interactive possibilities. MARK YOUR CALENDAR.

  • Wizard of Oz; Jan 12,
  • The Birdcage; Feb 9th,
  • The Big Lebowski; March 16,
  • Men in Black; April 13

The Sonora Opera Hall doors open at 6:00 pm, Costume contest is at 6:30 and the movie starts at 7:00 pm. Admission is just $5 and includes free popcorn and a goodie bag. There will be a no host bar serving the usual and the unusual. “The Munchkin” for the kids and “Flying Monkey’s” for the adults. Bring your own chair or use one of ours.
