We were lucky to be able to attend Beauty and the Beast in the center balcony. This place was great. Historical and very modern screen and sound system. The pictures and art in here were also fascinating. We definitely would come back to this place....More

If you love Disney movies, you have to catch a film at the El Capitan Theater. Most showings will have something extra you wouldn't find at the regular movie theater, like a preshow, or some of the movie props on display, etc. The theater is...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

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

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
