We visited in March 2017, and came to see Beauty and the Beast. We chose El Capitan by pure chance rather than deliberately to be honest, and hadn't actually heard of it, however did a tour of the Chinese Theatre earlier that same day so...More

If you want to experience the Old Hollywood glamour of seeing a movie with the modern technology, this is the place to be. Displays in the lobby, live organ music before the show, and an elaborate curtain ceremony are all aided by state of the...More

We just went here to see a movie. We saw Beauty and the Beast. We sat in the balcony and the show had extra stuff going on to entertain you.

As for my first time there all I could say is MAGICAL! I believe that the price of the ticket is very low comparing to what it offers. We watched "beauty and the beast" and after that we got to see the original costumes and...More

Since Disney reopened the historic El Capitan Theatre (built in the 1920's, along with Graumann's Chinese and Egyptian Theatres) in 1991, they make a very special opening run for all their movies there. The theater gets special decorations for each new film, and there is...More

Love this a theater and this is where all our Disney screenings are seen at. But today, the sound system was SO loud that it affected mine and my children's hearing today. My Daughter's ears were ringing after the 3p.m. show. It was bad enough...More

I was lucky that I came to LA when the box-office movie 'Beauty and The Beast' was on show. And where else could I watch the movie if not at The El Capitan Theatre?! It was like a complete package: watching Disney's movie at Disney's...More

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

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
