The Wizard of Oz 3D
I need another viewing of The Wizard of Oz like I need a head in my hole, but how does one resist the temptation of seeing a Munchkin in 3D? With a cast of over a thousand technicians slaving away for 16 months on the 3D (and IMAX) conversion, it’s safe to say that, short of a museum revival of a pristine archival dye-transfer print, one’s not likely to trod a more glistening, litter-free yellow brick road. The immersive technology magically transforms cinematographer Harold Rosson’s delicate shallow focus backgrounds into a giant pop-up book. Allow your eyes to roam the expansive canvas in search of some of the playful details of MGM’s customarily snooty in-house art director Cedric Gibbons. You have one night to experience it like never before. With Meinhardt Rabbe, Margaret Pellegrini, Jerry Maren, and Toto, too.
