For a limited time, the new Disney film "Oz the Great and Powerful" will play the Putnam Museum Giant Screen Theater in Davenport, opening next Friday, April 26. It will run until May 17.

A mischievous magician gains the wisdom to become a powerful ruler after being swept away to a land of magic and mystery as director Sam Raimi and screenwriters Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire ("Rabbit Hole") explore the genesis of author L. Frank Baum's enduring tales of Oz.

Shady illusionist Oscar Diggs (James Franco) enchants curious audiences at a Kansas circus. When he is inexplicably transported to the wondrous world of Oz, he encounters three witches named Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who pose him an awesome challenge: root out a ruinous force of evil that threatens to destroy the entire kingdom, and become the great leader that the population has been waiting for.
