Yellow Broke Road

there once was a Wizard of Oz theme park – Land of Oz – in Beech Mountain, North Carolina, that lived for a decade (1970-1980), and then it closed, but the park remained…

and while the theme park is dead, the place lives on – with a once a year ‘Autumn in Oz’ party, tours, and event rentals!!!

Designed by film director Wes Anderson, Bar Luce recreates the atmosphere of a typical Milanese cafè. Although his movies often favor symmetrical tableaux, Anderson feels that ‘there is no ideal angle for this space. It is for real life, and ought to have numerous good spots for eating, drinking, talking, reading, etc. While I do think it would make a pretty good movie set, I think it would be an even better place to write a movie. I tried to make it a bar I would want to spend my own non-fictional afternoons in.’
