    El Capitan Celebrates 80th Anniversary with Dumbo

    May 08, 2006

    Hollywood's legendary El Capitan Theatre kicks off its 80th anniversary with a special two-week engagement of Disney's Oscar-winning animated classic, DUMBO, from May 25 - June 7. DUMBO is celebrating its 65th birthday this year, and a new deluxe BIG TOP EDITION DVD release of the film is scheduled for June 6th.

    For this engagement, a pristine new transfer of the film was made, and it will be digitally projected. Adding to the festivities will be a live in-theater appearance by Winnie the Pooh (who is also celebrating his 80th birthday this year), and a screening of the 1966 Pooh animated short, WINNIE THE POOH AND THE HONEY TREE. The engagement will kick-off with a special filmmakers' panel on May 25 at 7:00 pm that will include veteran Disney animator Eric Goldberg (ALADDIN), Academy Award-winning songwriter Richard Sherman (who wrote many songs for the POOH films), film music historian Miles Kreuger (president of the Institute of the American Musical), among others. Tickets can be purchased at the box office, online at http://disney.go.com/disneypictures/el_capitan/ or by calling 1-800-DISNEY6.

    To further commemorate this landmark anniversary, Disney's Soda Fountain and Studio Store (located next door to the theatre) will be offering a special El Capitan 80th Anniversary commemorative pin. They will also be serving up a special "El Capitan Sundae," a delicious waffle bowl dipped in homemade chocolate, filled with two delicious scoops of Dewar's vanilla fudge ice cream, and drizzled with caramel, topped with whipped cream and a chocolate covered strawberry and dusted with a shimmering gold powder.
