    El Capitan Theater is a favorite photo stop along the busy Hollywood walk of fame area fronting the entrance to the Kodak theater as it just sits across the street. It is one of the Theaters made by the original founders of the Grauman's Chinese Theater, Charles Toberman and Sid Grauman, it was envisioned as a theater for various plays in the roaring 30's and at present is owned by Disney.

    Located accross from the Hollywood and Highland Complex is the restored El Capitan Theater. Located across from the Hollywood and Highland Complex is the restored El Capitan Theater. Originally opened in 1926 it was restored in the early 90's by Disney. It now plays feature length Disney movies.

    Be sure to get there early as before the movie you can hear the organist play Movie and Disney classics on a Pipe Organ with over 2500 Pipes.

    They also provide additional features with the movie depending on the movie. Recently for Nightmare Before Christmas in 3-D they had several original puppets from the movie on display.

    If possible opt for the VIP seats, these are reserved seats and also include popcorn and a soda.
