Par staffers gathered Friday morning for the unveiling, where Viacom prexy-CEO Philippe Dauman and Par chairman Brad Grey saluted Redstone’s passion for the picture biz. They also thanked him for his support not only in good times but during challenging times as well since Viacom acquired the studio in 1993.
