  • The Disney+ IRL exhibit is anticipated to be at the El Capitan theatre throughout the summer season.
  • This special pop-up exhibit is in great company being showcased at the theatre. In 1989, the Walt Disney Company joined forces with Pacific Theatres and launched a two-year, museum quality restoration of The El Capitan, the historic theater where Orson Welles debuted his controversial film, Citizen Kane in 1941.  Theatre designer Joseph J. Musil, with the supervision of the National Park Service's Department of the Interior, and guidance from conservator Martin Weil and architect Ed Fields, achieved the goal recreating the original 1926 look and feel — including original design elements such as the ornate plasterwork found hidden behind walls and the opera boxes in the main auditorium. The theatre reopened its doors to the public on June 19, 1991 for the world premiere of Walt Disney Pictures' The Rocketeer, which became the first of many Walt Disney Pictures feature films to premiere at the El Capitan Theatre.
