One of the best parts of seeing a movie at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, California is not just seeing a Disney film in a nice historic movie house (Disney runs this property and only programs their own films there). Nor is it the concessions often included in the price of your movie ticket. It’s not even the chance to hear the organist playing on the awesome Wurlitzer organ. Or the chance to see a pre-show (which can feature some familiar Disney parks performers!).
No, one of the things that I love most about going to the El Capitan when a live action film is playing there is the wonderfully curated exhibit of props and costumes from the film that often accompanies the film runs.
These exhibits are usually housed in a room downstairs from the theatre itself.
A year ago today, the film Tomorrowland was released. I went to see it play at the El Capitan, and today I’m going to share a few pictures of what this particular costume and props display looked like!
This exhibit was split into two sections with the costumes mainly on one side and props on the other.
Props from the other side of the exhibit area:
I so enjoyed this glimpse into the production side of filmmaking!
Next week I’m planning on seeing the new Alice Through the Looking Glass film at the El Capitan Theatre – come back and check out my pics and comments from that movie experience soon!
Mousertainment Memorandum: Please note the corresponding exhibits only last for the dates the film is playing at the El Capitan Theatre – so if you want to see a display for a particular film there, don’t wait too long!
