El Capitan Theatre, the Walt Disney Company owned-and-operated movie house in Hollywood, will get a five-day jump on the rest of the world when Frozen begins an exclusive engagement there on November 22.
The special showings, which will run November 22 until January 5, 2014, will be preceded by ice carving performance artists on stage, as well as Frozen characters Anna and Elsa in their first live-on-stage appearances.
“The whole company is incredibly excited about Frozen and can’t wait to share it with audiences this Thanksgiving,” said Dave Hollis, executive vice president, theatrical distribution, The Walt Disney Studios. “We know that fans come to El Capitan to have a special Disney experience, and we are thrilled to give our guests there the opportunity to be among the first in the world to see this stunning new animated adventure.”
The film will open in the rest of the world on November 27, so the cinema--where Disney does most of their West Coast movie premieres--will have the movie to itself for 25 special showings before its official release.
Daily showtimes are 10 a.m., 1 p.m., 4 p.m., 7 p.m. and 9:45 p.m. (select days only for 9:45 p.m. show). Tickets are available at El Capitan Theatre (6838 Hollywood Blvd.), online at www.elcapitantickets.com or by calling 1-800-DISNEY6.
Opening-day guests will receive special souvenir realD 3D glasses (while supplies last). Throughout the run, realD is providing kid-sized 3D glasses, specially made to fit children 8 and under while they enjoy the movie.
Guests are invited to have breakfast with Anna at 8:30 a.m. prior to the 10 a.m. showing on select days. Seating is limited. Advance purchase is required with purchase of a movie ticket. Tickets including breakfast and the movie are $41 per adult general admission, $38 for child/senior general admission and $51 for VIP admission, which includes popcorn, soft drink, reserved seating and no waiting in line.
El Capitan Theatre will host Tiny Tot Tuesday at 10 a.m. every week throughout the run. During these special screenings of the film, parents and small children can enjoy the movie in 2D in a Tiny Tot-friendly way––complete with lights dimmed rather than out and reduced sound levels.
