When you see a film at The El Capitan Theatre, you are witnessing movie magic the way it was intended-- larger than life and in one of the most enchanting venues ever designed just for this art form. Known as “the first home of spoken drama”, The El Capitan Theatre opened its doors on May 3, 1926. Between its opening and 1936, over 120 live plays were produced. A true piece of film history, The El Capitan Theatre was the home of the premier of Orson Welles' “Citizen Kane”. In 1989, The Walt Disney Company, together with Pacific Theatres, fully restored the theatre to its original glory.
