Dorothy and the Witches of Oz theatrical release

The theatrical version of "Dorothy and the Witches of Oz" (renamed from "The Witches of Oz") will have a limited release beginning this month. While the total running time is about an hour less than the 2-part miniseries that is being released on DVD/Blu-ray in April, this version includes 15 minutes of new footage and upgraded special effects.

Set in modern day New York City, the movie is a sequel to L. Frank Baum's stories (not to the 1939 movie) in which Dorothy, played by Paulie Rojas, struggles to remember her long ago past. It features Christopher Lloyd as the Wizard of Oz, Billy Boyd as Dorothy's love interest, and Sean Astin is a small but funny role as the tiny sprite, Frack.

Confirmed theaters and dates include:

February 17:

Harkins Arrowhead Fountains - Peoria, Arizona
Harkins Chandler Fashion - Chandler, Arizona
Harkins Superstition Springs - Mesa, Arizona
Harkins North Valley - Phoenix, Arizona

February 24:
AMC Town Center 20 - Leawood, Kansas
AMC Studio 30 - Olathe, Kansas
Rave Stonybrook 20 - Louisville, Kentucky


This list will be updated as new information becomes available. Check your local listings for details.
