For those that live in or will be visiting the Los Angeles area, there’s no better place to see a movie than the famous El Capitan Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard. Now celebrating its 90th year, The El Capitan will host one of the summer’s most anticipated sequels when Disney•Pixar’s Finding Dory swims into theatres on June 17th. In addition to a stunning presentation of the film, including Dolby Vision 2D picture and Dolby Atmos audio, each screening will include a preshow featuring The Bubble Guy who will form bubbles beyond the imagination in a breathtaking bubble extravaganza live on stage/
On June 16, El Capitan guests are invited to be among the first to see the all–new adventure at a special opening-night screening at 7 p.m., featuring a costume contest, raffle prizes and more. At 10:15 p.m., the El Capitan presents Dory After Dark with screenings of Finding Nemo, Finding Dory, and selected Disney•Pixar Short subjects; “Partysaurus Rex” and “Piper”. Guests will also receive Dory After Dark t-shirts, reusable bag, and Speak Like a Whale button.
“There is no better place than The El Capitan Theatre to dive back into the underwater world of Finding Dory,” said James Wood, operations and stage productions for the El Capitan Theatre. “Not only will we present the movie in Dolby Vision 2D with Dolby Atmos audio technology, El Capitan guests will have the opportunity to experience an interactive and educational exhibit from the Aquarium of the Pacific, so guests can further explore all the fascinating creatures that live in the ocean.”
El Capitan guests will also have the opportunity to Double the Fun through this partnership with Aquarium of the Pacific. For $35 per ticket (with a minimum purchase of 10 tickets), guests will receive a ticket to Disney•Pixar’s Finding Dory at the El Capitan Theatre, which includes the Live Stage Show and interactive Aquarium Display, Finding Dory Limited Edition Pin, ticket to the Aquarium of the Pacific (good for any date/time) and an Aquarium of the Pacific Patch.
