Sept. 15 was family day at the 75th anniversary unveiling of “The Wizard of Oz” in IMAX 3D at the newly converted Tcl Chinese Theatre, formerly Grauman’s, in Hollywood, now the largest IMAX theater in the world and where the film premiered in 1939.
At the premiere’s pre-party, industryites and their kids sampled the cupcakes and candies, scribbled 3D drawings at coloring stations, and were introduced to Madame Tussaud’s newest creation, Judy Garland as Dorothy.
Rico Rodriguez of “Modern Family” proceeded to interview the wax figure, not unlike Clint Eastwood‘s one-way dialogue with a chair at the 2012 Republican Convention. Also spotted in the room: William Shatner, who worked with Garland on the 1961 film “Judgement at Nuremberg. When asked what he expected to see from the 3D conversion, Shatner responded: “The delight in my grandchildren’s eyes.” Marcia Gay Harden, there with her daughters, recalled seeing the film at age six or seven. »
