Walking a Carpet be it red or purple is always a high energy event. Everyone is on level 100. Fans are shouting. Paparazzi is everywhere. Cast, crew, and other celebrities are smiling from ear to ear. Little ole me is taking as many photos as possible and even taking mental snapshots so I can remember just how fantastic the event was. So let’s get straight to the pictures so you can see the organized chaos that is a MARVEL Premiere:
Chris Pratt and his wife have to be the CUTEST couple in Hollywood. Their love is palpable. Just look at those pictures and say it with me….AWWWWWW
I was on the side snapping side shots of different celebrities. Like this one with Vin Diesel and his loveley kids. It’s so great seeing great actors in family mode. You know she was excited as can be with her dad walking the carpet.
In between all the celebrity shots I managed to grab a cute photo for myself. Excuse my neck. I don’t know why I was looking all weird. Trying to catch the light maybe? Maybe I was trying to mek my neck look thinner? Who knows. I was having too much fun to worry about it.
Like I said before the energy was palpable. Everyone was just excited to be there and experience it. It was like a family reunuion without the awkwardness. PLUS, this family reunion had Goldie Hawn and Kurt Ruseell. #EnoughSaid
Then we headed into the acclaimed Dolby Theatre which you might have previously seen during the Oscars.
For the theatergoer, Dolby Theatre experience begins on Hollywood Boulevard, where a towering portal, designed by Rockwell, serves as the grand entrance to the theatre, which is set back from the street. A two-story Awards Walk, featuring backlit glass plaques for each Best Picture Oscar® winner on a series of limestone portals, leads up a sweeping staircase with red mosaic tile to the main entrance.
The audience chamber is highlighted by a silver-leafed “tiara”, a striking, looping oval structure that both supports and disguises an immense ceiling grid for lighting. Reflective ribs from the tiara extend down between the theatre’s box seats, creating a continuous flow from wall to ceiling. The chamber was designed to draw attention to the action on the stage, as well as to achieve the maximum intimacy between audience and performers. It is appointed with sumptuous details that give the space warmth including cherrywood finishes and deep plum upholstery, as well as a shimmering glow provided by curtains of two shades of iridescent fabric and a fine bronze mesh that stretches to the top of the proscenium, which measures some 64 feet wide by 35 feet high. The main stage area is one of the largest in the nation, at 120 feet wide and 75 feet deep.
It was such a whirlwind event! Plus, the movie….YOU GUYS…Volume 2 ROCKED! I will tell you all about that later on and be sure to check in tomorrow for Chris Pratt’s interview! So much more to share. Until then!
