When it comes to celebrating Judy Garland’s birthday, the requisite song and blow-out-your-candles-now dance just doesn’t quite cut it.

In a seeming effort to ensure that the milestone of Garland’s 89th birthday did not go unnoticed, the Film Society of Lincoln Center is supplying details for its summer tribute to the actress and singer. The festival, emphatically titled All Singin’, All Dancin’, All JUDY! (all caps!) will mark the first time in 40 years that Garland’s work has been collected in such a concentrated form.

More details and video clips below.

From July 26 to August 9, Lincoln Center will screen 31 of Garland’s most famous film roles to mark the 75th anniversary of her feature debut in the 1936 musical Pigskin Parade. Lincoln Center is also partnering with the Paley Center for Media, a New York nonprofit that “examines the intersections between media and society,” to present Judy Garland: The Television Years.

Running concurrently with the film exhibition from July 20 to August 18, the Paley Center’s program will feature content from the The Judy Garland Show as well as guest spots she recorded for other shows, including The Ed Sullivan Show and The Sammy Davis Jr. Show.Hardcore Garland fans will want to make their way to the Walter Reade Theater on July 30 for a sing-along screening of The Wizard of Oz, although a sing-along at 10:30 am strikes us as a bit intrepid. Also of note in the line-up is a night before presentation on Garland and Oz by the film historian John Frick, who has written extensively about Garland and her most famous, bedazzled-red-shoe-featuring role.

For more information on the festival, check out the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s website; in the meantime, it might be wise to brush up on some lyrics. After all, you don’t want to feel like it’s you they’re singing about when it’s time for “If I Only Had a Brain.”
