Let’s get ready for Dumbo! The all-new live-action reimagining directed by movie mastermind Tim Burton soared onto the big screen this Thursday night, and as always there’s no better place to see this Disney film than at El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood.
A photo op with Dumbo the Flying Elephant himself greets guests as they enter the main lobby of El Capitan Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard, and downstairs they’ll find display cases filled with colorful costumes and props from the film, plus a poster tribute art show dedicated to the movie’s big-eared star.

Also included with the price of admission to screenings of Dumbo at El Capitan are live performances by Circus Arts, which help welcome audience members to the Big Top before the feature presentation begins.

It’s the kind of experience you just can’t get anywhere else other than the El Capitan Theatre.”
