El Capitan Theatre to show 5 Disney Live-Action Adaptions in Festival

Leading up to the debut of the much anticipated premiere of “Beauty and the Beast” the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood will show five of Disney’s live-action adaptions of its beloved classic animated features between March 3rd and 12th.

The Festival of Fairytales will kick off with Disney’s “Maleficent” (2014) directed by Robert Stromberg, March 3-4, followed by Disney’s “The Jungle Book” (2016) directed by Jon Favreau, March 5-6; “Pete’s Dragon” (2016) directed by David Lowery, March 7-8, “Cinderella” (2015) directed by Kenneth Branagh, March 9-10, and concluding with “Alice in Wonderland”(2010) directed by Tim Burton, March 11-12.

“Recently Disney has taken some of its most beloved stories and made them into new films for new audiences – of which “Beauty and the Beast” opening March 17 here at The El Capitan Theatre is the latest,” said Ed Collins, General Manager of The El Capitan Theatre. “Many of these new films which have been very popular with audiences and critics alike have become classics in their own right. They have given a whole new generation a way to have a unique experience with these characters. We know that our El Capitan Guests will welcome a chance to see these films again on the big screen as they were meant to be seen and we are thrilled to present them now.”
