We all remember watching Dorothy and friends skipping down the yellow brick road in "The Wizard of Oz". Now in an interesting re-telling of the story Dorothy is replaced by an ethically challenged circus magician played by James Franco in "Oz, The Great and Powerful" opening this weekend in local theaters. It's joined by a thriller, "Dead Man Down" with Colin Farrell. Check out the trailers and local show times.

Here are the show times at the Marquee in New Hartford, the Rome Cinemas and the Glenwood Movieplex in Oneida.
