The El Capitan Theatre Hollywood Reviews
Entertainment With Flair Jun 13, 2008
The El Capitan Theatre is a true shining star on Hollywood Blvd. El Capitan is situated across from the Hollywood & Highland Entertainment Complex where you can also find convenient parking. El Capitan will validate your Hollywood & Highland parking stub for a partial discount.
When the neon sign on El Capitan is aglow, it has the look and feel of old Hollywood. You could order movie tickets on-line as well as from the ticket booth at the theatre entrance. The interiors of the El Capitan are VERY ORNATE!!! And depending on what is showing, there is a theme in the decorations and usually movie set exhibits in the theatre foyer.
While waiting for the movie to start, the "Mighty Wurlitzer", a theatre pipe organ, is raised from below the stage and the organist plays popular Disney movie tunes. After the the organ music and just before the movie, the organ descends below the stage and a short live-action skit complete with actors plays out on the stage. When Jenn79 and I went it was The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.
It is no wonder that Hollywood is the entertainment capital of the world...and the El Capitan Theatre is definitely a fine example of Hollywood showmanship. The movie tickets are more than the stadium theatres but you get fabulous ambiance at El Capitan. The seats are very comfy and cushiony but the leg room sucks but that's because its an old theatre. I would absolutely come back to see another film at El Capitan.
