Wear green and celebrate the release of Disney’s “Oz the Great and Powerful.”

That’s what Coastal Cinemas in Shallotte invites everyone to do with festivities that started last week and continue this week.

The film, telling the story of how Oscar Diggs transforms from a selfish flim-flam artist to the great and powerful man who helps inhabitants of the Land of Oz, opens Friday, March 8.

Planned events include local magician Mark Vann performing at the movie theater at 6 p.m. Saturday, March 9.

Trivia contests will be conducted all week long on Cool 105.3 FM.

A Three Witches Costume Contest will take place at the theater at 5200 Bridgers Road.

A Witch and Wizard makeover station will be on hand to magically turn young patrons into a witch or wizard.

Guests will be able to guess the number of emeralds in the jar to win a prize donated by Douglas Diamonds.

“The Most Emerald Citizen” will be given passes to the theater.

Guests will be invited to “Bring the Black and White to Life” in a coloring contest.

As Oscar himself was given a second chance, there is a second chance for everyone to win by telling how you had a second chance to transform a situation into a wonderful outcome.
