There is no logical reason why The Wizard of Oz has entered the Christmas film canon. The 80-year-old Judy Garland vehicle following a young girl’s journey through the fantasy land of Oz has zero mentions of the holiday, and its tornado-centric plot suggests a time of year far warmer than a Kansas December.

Nevertheless, the film persists as a delicacy that, while available year round, somehow feels special during the holiday season — like tins of popcorn or the inevitable pair of socks received from a distant relative.

The San Antonio Symphony will accompany a screening of the film with a live music performance of its Oscar-winning soundtrack, bringing the thrill of live instrumentals to a film that still packs on the charm decades after its original release.

$26-$65, 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 13 and Saturday, Dec. 14, Majestic Theatre, 224 E. Houston St., (210) 226-3333, majesticempire.com.
