IMAX theaters has released an amazing time-lapse video of the construction in Hollywood's famous Grauman's Chinese Theatre as it transforms into the new TLC IMAX Chinese Theatre, which opens Sept. 20.


From Slashfilm:

The renovation began May 1 and will end on September 20 when the theater reopens with a special 3D IMAX presentation of The Wizard of Oz. (A film that, not coincidentally, premiered at the same location in 1939.) With room for 932 people, the TCL IMAX Chinese Theatre is largest IMAX theater in the world in terms of seating capacity.

What do you think of the transformation? Will you see the Wizard of Oz in 3D?
