Oz: The Great and Powerful

Movie will be the 11:20 2D showtime.

You guys know the drill.  We'll hit up Copeland's for their specials ($5 martinis and $6 appetizers), and then walk over for a late showing at Parkway Pointe. Time may change when the showtimes are announced. As always, please include whether you're planning to dinner in your RSVP.

 

Synopsis from Rotten Tomatoes below:

 

Disney's fantastical adventure "Oz The Great and Powerful," directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum's beloved wizard character. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he's hit the jackpot-fame and fortune are his for the taking-that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone's been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity-and even a bit of wizardry-Oscar transforms himself not only into the great wizard but into a better man as well. When small-time magician Oscar Diggs (James Franco) pulls one flimflam too many, he finds himself hurled into the fantastical Land of Oz where he must somehow transform himself into the great wizard-and just maybe into a better man as well. -- (C) Walt Disney

      March 8, 2013

  • Leigh T.

    Hey everyone, this is why the ticket s $15. If you want your $4 refund, call Fandango. They were really helpful in issuing me a refund! Are we still planning to chill at Copelands for a couple hours now that the show is actually later?

    March 7, 2013

    • Ben B.

      Fandango is apparently annoyed with us. They don't guarantee refunds. I talked with the Fandango customer service manager and he said that although this was their mistake, the refund might not go through. Go to the theater instead if you haven't called.

    I'm in for the movie only. Going to something else beforehand.

    March 8, 2013

  • Ben B.

    Don't call Fandango. Fandango cannot and will not guarantee a refund. The theater, on the other hand, WILL issue refunds for the mess up. I just spent 30 minutes on the phone with their manager. Before dinner tomorrow, go to guest services and tell them the situation. They will switch out the tickets for the 11:20 showing and give you cash back.

    March 7, 2013

  • Brie

    Due to AMC's error, the 10:40 showtime is actually 3D. If you want to do that one still, that's fine. Officially, I'm putting the meetup at the 11:20 showtime. Dinner will stay the same time - gives some extra time for a possible crowd.
    For those who have bought tickets, AMC said they will exchange them for the later. Just has to be done in person at the theater (might be better to stop before dinner if you have the time).

      Wow. Thanks for the info. I definitely need to exchange. Not a fan of 3D

      March 7, 2013

  • Kelsey Lynn M.

    I talked to a woman at the counter and she said the website screwed up and that the 10:40 showtime is suposed to be 3d. So for people who already bought tickets for the 10:40, if yall want to switch to a different time, the manager will allow it but we'll probably need to get here early to make sure we have seats. The only 2d shows now are either 8:15 or 11:20.

    March 7, 2013

  • Kelsey Lynn M.

    Ummm...hate to burst yalls bubbles but the 10:40 showing is 3d. I'm at the theater now. The only late 2d showing is 11:20. Soooo....what should we do?

    March 7, 2013

    • Michaele

      This is relevant because I'm currently popping enormous bubble wrap.

    I have a gift card to AMC so I'd prefer to buy from them. Are they selling tickets for tomorrow's movies already?

    March 7, 2013

  • Leigh T.

    hey Lee, I'm only showing one Oz showing at 9pm?

    March 7, 2013

    • Ben B.

      The tickets are cheaper at AMC but they might sell out.

      March 7, 2013

    • Michaele

      AMC links to fandango online.

      March 7, 2013

  • Lee H

    If you haven't already, I suggest getting your tickets ahead of time. Last time we went to a "highly anticipated" movie, 2 people didn't make it b/c tickets were sold out (and it was a late showing).

    March 7, 2013

  • Mary Ann L.

    We have our tickets

    Looks like showtime is 10:40, so let's meet for dinner at 8:30. Be sure to update on whether you are coming to dinner as well as the movie so that the restaurant can have an accurate count.
    Keep in mind run time is a little over two hours.
