I heard about doing this in college but never did it myself. It is only the 1st 45 minutes. Trippy.

    You’re supposed to put the CD on “repeat”, and the rest of the movie should be in sync, too.

    By the way, you’re a damn hippie for doing this. But then, so am I for telling you how to play the CD correctly. 🙂

    This is what I got from a Dark side of the Rainbow web site.


    “The Wizard of Oz has been a classic film, ever since it came out. And Dark Side of the Moon has been a must-have on any album collectors shelf since 1973. Now you can enjoy them together. This synchronicity seems to be a favorite on the Pink Floyd newsgroup; it certainly is discussed a lot there.

    There are a few different versions of the synchronicity. Following is detailed information on the different theories of how to achieve The Dark Side of the Rainbow:

    There are a variety of different ways to start the synchronicity between Dark Side of the Moon and Wizard of Oz. Conventional knowledge seems to hold that the famed Third Roar Theory is the best of the bunch, but I leave it up to you to experiment and choose your own favorite.

    Third Roar Theory
    Perhaps the best known variation of the Dark Side of the Rainbow synchronicity is the Third Roar Theory. It’s certainly the first variation I myself discovered. It works very well and is relatively easy to set up. First put in cd, tape, or record of Dark Side of the Moon that you’re going to use; generally this is easiest with cd, but if you’re “slumming” it, it is possible to do it with other media (although considerably more difficult).

    Pause Dark Side of the Moon on track one.

    Put in The Wizard Of Oz and wait for the MGM lion logo to appear.

    The MGM Lion

    When the MGM lion roars for THE THIRD TIME,
    unpause Dark Side of the Moon.

    You’ll know you’ve got it right when the credit for Mervyn LeRoy fades in along with a wonderful sudden transition in Dark Side of the Moon. The album should end with Dorothy putting her ear to the Tin Man’s chest, to the tune of the ending heartbeat on the album. Since Dark Side of the Moon is not as long as The Wizard of Oz, there are a number of variations for what to do next; see below for more information on those.”

    And yes I am a dang hippy!
