The historic El Capitan Theater on Hollywood Boulevard is hosting a special showing of Disney’s Christopher Robin through August 26th. The engagement kicked off with a fan event on Thursday, August 2nd.
During the run of the film, guests will be able to see a display of the Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore and Tigger stuffed animals used in the making of the movie. These “stuffies” – as they were referred to on set – were created using manufacturing processes that would have existed in the 1920s when the original toys were made. The display imagines the toys as they are seen in an extra musical scene, set on the seaside, seen during the end credits of the film.
Another added feature for the opening weekend was a performance by the Side Street Strutters Jazz Band before each showing of the film. The band, direct from the Disneyland Resort, will also be on hand for performances on August 11 and 12.
Returning for this engagement is the Hard Rock Café Movie & Meal Package. Reservations (booked at least 24 hours in advance) include a reserved seat and a meal at the Hard Rock Café. Choice of entrée is included. The cost is $40 and does not include alcohol or concessions at the theater.
For families with young children, the El Capitan Theater offers Tiny Tot Tuesdays. The first showing every Tuesday lights are dimmed rather than completely darkened and sound levels are reduced so that parents and children can enjoy the film in a more tot-friendly way.
Tickets for all showings at the El Capitan Theater are available at the box office, by calling 1-800-DISNEY6, or at ElCapitanTickets.com.
