IMAX 3D Hollywood Unveiling – The Wizard of Oz: An IMAX 3D Experience
After months of major revisions and countless hours of painstakingly delicate efforts to maintain the entire integrity of the many historic and iconic theatre elements, the world famous TCL Chinese Theatre proudly relaunched as the world’s largest IMAX theatre, nestled in the heart of Hollywood. As well as housing a massive 932 seats, our primary auditorium is home to one of the largest commercial screens on the continent.
The debut feature at our Hollywood IMAX theatre was a fittingly timeless American classic which actually originally premiered at our Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in 1939; The Wizard of OZ – re-envisioned in the full, vibrant splendor of IMAX 3D.
TCL Chinese Theatres Renovates & Joins the IMAX family
We worked closely with the Historic Resources Group at every step to ensure that we did not alter a single historic aspect. We also received the support of Hollywood Heritage, Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation, and LA Conservancy for this project.
Sid Grauman will always be known as the world’s best showman. He set the trends for movie theatres around the world. In order to preserve the legacy of Sid Grauman and the iconic nature of the theatre, the facility and its use must be maintained as a viable presentation house for motion pictures, not a club or museum. Without new technology, the building risked becoming irrelevant to the movie industry and many movie-goers – a relic of the past without function in a city which thrives on the avant-garde. Economic viability depends on ongoing film presentations in addition to the preservation of historic character. Sid Grauman’s vision for this theatre was for it to be the best movie palace in the world, with a superior movie-viewing experience. We therefore feel strongly that we will best achieve one of our guiding objectives of honoring Sid Grauman’s legacy by intalling IMAX capabilities, thus ensuring that this historic landmark remains a leader in exhibition for generations to come. We think it is imperative to maintain the integrity of the building and to preserve its timeless, character-defining features.
