Dark Side of the Rainbow: The Wizard of Oz With Dark Side of the Moon

You’ve heard all those rumors about the synchronicity between Hollywood’s beloved The Wizard of Oz and Pink Floyd’s 1973 musical opus, Dark Side of the Moon. Supposedly, if you crank up the album with the third roar of the MGM lion you’ll enter an upside-down world of hidden meanings and trippy rabbit holes. Attendees will receive a printed copy of the complete play-by-play list of all 100-plus synchronicities.
