‘The Wizard of Oz’ in 3D IMAX World Premiere

Sept 16, 2013 There’s no place like home, there’s no place like… Hollywood. “The Wizard of Oz” first introduced the world to the wonders of Technicolor on August 15, 1939, at the famous Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. Last night, 74 years and one month later, Warner Bros. premiered “The Wizard of Oz: An IMAX 3D Experience” at the grand reopening of the theater, now TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX, recently renovated to maintain that sense of grandeur. Among the many guests on the ruby red carpet were Ruth Duccini (one of the two surviving Munchkins, pictured above), Molly Ringwald, Marcia Gay Harden, Mario Lopez, John Fricke (a “The Wizard of Oz” historian), Danielle Wade (Dorothy in the current national tour of the Broadway adaptation), and many more.
