Description:

Valley Center for the Blind is pleased to present “Dreams Really Do Come True: Giving Hope to Those with Vision Loss,” a fun filled evening to celebrate the achievements of those with vision loss. This special screening of The Wizard of Oz will be held at Warnors Theatre on Thursday, November 10th. Doors open at 6pm and the movie will begin at 7pm.

Bring the whole family as Valley Center for the Blind takes this opportunity to share with the community the inspiring stores of those who have overcome the struggles of vision loss to lead amazing and inspiring lives. Learn about how those with vision loss are able to live independently, continue loved activities and even gain meaningful employment.

The Wizard of Oz has been delighting audiences of all ages since 1939, and is literally timeless. Concessions will be available at a much more affordable price than modern Cineplexs’, and you’ll love the atmosphere in this 1928 movie palace.

The CDC estimates twenty-one million Americans suffer from functional vision loss- and many of these individuals have conditions that will continue to worsen over their lifetime. The idea of going blind brings fear to so many but, with Valley Center for the Blind on your side; there is hope for a bright future. Valley Center for the Blind was established in 1973 and helps those with vision loss through specialized methods of training, supportive services and lots of fun. Valley Center for the Blind is the sole agency providing this level of support to those with vision loss in Fresno, Kings, Tulare and Madera Counties. We believe that every individual, regardless of disability, has the right to a fulfilled and independent life.

Tickets are $10 each, and children 12 and under are free. They can be purchased by phone at 559-264-2848, online at www.warnors.org, and at the box office at 1400 Fulton (cash ONLY).
