We liked the music before the show began! The ushers were very friendly, money well spent, able to to see some of Stan Lee's collection.

"It was time. Been wanting to watch here at El Capitan for a couple of years.Life and other things just took precedents. Finally some free time and being in area led me here. Thought $26 bucks for a movie was high, but popcorn and drink made it less painful. It was included with the ticket price. Still, there was a magic show and music before. Movie, Oz, was great. Place was packed. Snug definitely. VIP Seats needed to be reserved. VIP tickets were worth it. Will go again. Didn't sit in upper deck. Still think it would be great. Everything was well managed and well trained. Concierge for Ice cream. Tell them where you are seated and they will bring it to you. Ushers would direct to your seat and while waiting in line for movies theushers took your parking ticket and validated for you. I liked the scanners for movie ticket. Well planned, well executed service. Park at shopping center across the street and just walk across. Lots to see.

I don't just mean beautiful, I mean spectacular beauty. It is so stunning when curtain after curtain separates before the beginning of the film, and one more beautiful than the other. The old, original organ is still in place and the screen huge with incredible sound. Wonderful restoration.

I would come here just to watch the curtains open! I came as part of the TCM Classic Film Festival and saw MY FAIR LADY. The theater had an organ player that played themes from several classic movies and musicals. When it was time to start the movie the organ sank into the floor! I sat in the balcony and was mesmerized by the curtains. You have to see it to believe it! True Disney Style
