Wreck-It Ralph’s catch phrase may be “I’m gonna wreck it!” but one place that definitely doesn’t wreck the filmgoing experience is El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, which is any Southern California Disney fan’s go-to destination to see the latest big-screen releases from the House of Mouse. On Tuesday evening, El Capitan held a double feature of the first Wreck-It Ralph movie, followed by an opening night showing of its highly anticipated sequel Ralph Breaks the Internet.
On hand at El Capitan Theatre to celebrate the release of Ralph Breaks the Internet were its stars Wreck-It Ralph and Vanellope Von Schweetz themselves, who greeted and posed for photos with guests, plus attendees were welcome to pose for shots with a “Sugar Rush” arcade game cabinet and in front of a themed mural wall. A variety of merchandise tied into the movie was also available next door at the Disney Studio Store & Girardelli Soda Fountain shop.

Hollywood’s legendary El Capitan Theatre presents a special engagement of Disney’s “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” shown in Brilliant Dolby Vision Laser Projection & Dolby Atmos Sound Technology. El Capitan guests will enter the world of the internet as they step inside the theatre, and can take selfies along the “Ralph Breaks the Internet” themed mural wall.
Once guests were seated inside the auditorium itself, and just after three exciting trailers for upcoming Disney releases, the audience was treated to a very impressive projection mapped show displayed all around El Capitan’s elaborate proscenium, to the tune of Imagine Dragon’s hit song “Zero” from the Ralph Breaks the Internet original soundtrack.
