The El Capitan Theatre has been hosting numerous “throwback” feature film presentations, and that series continues in the coming weeks as the legendary theater presents Mary Poppins, and Earth.
- Hollywood’s legendary El Capitan Theatre continues its year-long Disney Archives 50th Anniversary Celebration with two screenings – Walt Disney’s Mary Poppins (1964) once only on Wednesday, March 4 at 7:00pm and Disneynature Earth (2009) on Wednesday, April 22, 2020 at 10:00am.
- Mary Poppins (March 4) will feature a special introduction by the Walt Disney Archives and an exclusive display of production memorabilia from the department’s legendary collection.
- When Jane (Karen Dotrice) and Michael (Matthew Garber), the children of the wealthy and uptight Banks family, are faced with the prospect of a new nanny, they are pleasantly surprised by the arrival of the magical Mary Poppins (Julie Andrews). Embarking on a series of fantastical adventures with Mary and her Cockney performer friend, Bert (Dick Van Dyke), the siblings try to pass on some of their nanny's sunny attitude to their preoccupied parents (David Tomlinson, Glynis Johns).
- Disneynature Earth (April 22) will feature a special introduction by the Walt Disney Archives highlighting the legacy of Disney’s nature films and conservation projects.
