About Jungle Cruise:

  • “Join fan favorites Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt for the adventure of a lifetime on Disney’s Jungle Cruise, a rollicking thrill-ride down the Amazon with wisecracking skipper Frank Wolff and intrepid researcher Dr. Lily Houghton. Lily travels from London, England to the Amazon jungle and enlists Frank’s questionable services to guide her downriver on La Quila—his ramshackle-but-charming boat. Lily is determined to uncover an ancient tree with unparalleled healing abilities—possessing the power to change the future of medicine. Thrust on this epic quest together, the unlikely duo encounters innumerable dangers and supernatural forces, all lurking in the deceptive beauty of the lush rainforest. But as the secrets of the lost tree unfold, the stakes reach even higher for Lily and Frank and their fate—and mankind’s—hangs in the balance.”

About El Capitan Theatre:

  • In the 1920s, Charles Toberman and Sid Grauman built the Egyptian, Chinese, and El Capitan theatres. The El Capitan originally staged musicals and plays before being converted for film for the world premiere of Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane.
  • In 1989, the Walt Disney Company teamed up with Pacific Theatres to launch a two-year restoration of The El Capitan Theatre led by theatre designer Joseph J. Musil, recreating the original 1926 look and feel.
  • Since 1991, The El Capitan Theatre has been used as an exclusive first-run theatre for The Walt Disney Studios. It has also hosted live stage shows, world premieres, special events, and screenings of classic Disney films.
  • The El Capitan Theatre has been declared a Historic Cultural Monument by the City of Los Angeles.
