El Capitan Theater is a "Movie Palace" of the 1920s which was bought by Disney and restored to its original grandeur. You can order reserved seats online (no waiting in lines to avoid being stuck with bad seats), you are greeted at the door, and...More

This classic theatre is beautiful, and the Dolby Atmos sound and pre-show or special exhibits that accompany features here give seeing movies here the advantage over other places in the area. However, a recent poor guest service experience will cause me to think twice about...More

Wow. What a beautiful theater! I wish all theater's looked liked this. It was a nice switch of scenery to watch a movie versus modern day movie theaters. The El Capitan is one of the last remaining movie houses in the U.S. that still shows...More

We went to see Dr Strange 3D, the theatre is great and has lots of history. If you get there early they have a pre show organist that plays some nice tunes

I purchased an $18 ticket to see Moana and the theatre was slightly cold, but as the film went on it got colder to the point where I actually felt like I was stood outside back home in London, England. After having resorted to putting...More

I have never been inside the El Capitan ... But I will always remember the time that I met Guillermo outside the theatre. Guillermo is one of the biggest and nicest celebrities I have ever met. A real class act!

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night

Thank you Brian. I did tried to purchase tickets online before I posted my question, but unfortunately the onsite connections kept failing.
If I am not buying a reserved seat is there a best day and time to go to get a good seat?

I'm not sure there is a bad seat. We sat in the very back row and thought it was perfect. Others in our group sat in front and liked their seats. I think it is just a matter of personal preference (e.g., I like to be on the... More
