Commenting on the announcement, Lylle Breier, senior vice president, worldwide special events for Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, said, “ ‘Lady and the Tramp' is filled with memorable music and purebred fun. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than here at the El Capitan with one of the most romantic films of all time.”
“Lady and the Tramp,” originally released in June, 1955, was the first Disney animated feature to be filmed in CinemaScope.  Directed by Hamilton Luske, Clyde Geronimi, and Wilfred Jackson, the film follows the adventures of a young cocker spaniel from a respectable house, and her romantic escapades with Tramp, a devil-may-care mutt from the wrong side of the railroad tracks.  Lady’s comfortable life with her human family undergoes some dramatic changes with the arrival of newborn baby, and she turns to Tramp for support.  Together they have several memorable outings including a romantic moonlit spaghetti dinner at Tony’s, but things go seriously awry when Lady ends up being thrown in the dog pound.  
Tramp ultimately redeems himself by saving the baby from a rat and thereby wins Lady’s love and the affection of her human family.  The film features several enchanting songs by Peggy Lee (who voices the conniving Siamese cats, Si and Am, as well as the characters Darling and Peg) and Sonny Burke – including “Bella Notte,” “He’s a Tramp” and “The Siamese Cat Song.”
