There's truly no place like home and for one week, starting Friday, September 20, families will be able to witness the magic of The Wizard of Oz on the big screen. To celebrate its 75th anniversary, the classic, which we named our number one film for families, has been digitally re-mastered and will be released in theaters in 3D and IMAX (we can just picture the lifelike tornado and Yellow Brick Road scenes). To find a theater near you playing the flick, click here. A collector's edition of the film on DVD and Blu-ray will be released on October 1.

RECOMMENDED: Best films for families

We're also loving the Wizard of Oz toys that have been hitting shelves in recent weeks One of our favorites: These adorable Oz-themed dolls ($35 each, pictured above) from Madame Alexander.
