“In the heart of Hollywood.”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is an old style theatre that has been renovated to excellent condition. Disney owns it and they have done a fabulous of restoring it to mint condition. They only run one movie and uusually for a month or two. But they also own the building next door and a ticket to the movie usually gets you in to see the exhibit hall next door too. Love sitting in the balcony.

“Movie Grandeur”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

If you never go to another movie theater, you must attend a showing at the El Capitan. It has been exquisitely renewed by the Disney company and now it's the epitome of the old time movie palace, including (and don't miss this!) an organ concert before the movie, ending (when I was there) with the Sousa march, "El Capitan." Who cares what the movie is?

“Another great Disney icon”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

We stayed across the road for a week at the wonderful Loews Hotel, part of the Hollywood Highland Center. The glitz and glamour of this place was enjoyable every time we walked nearby or into it. If you are not nearby it is still very much worthwhile taking some time to visit this place. But there is plenty to see across the road as well, so be in it.
