Disney’s El Capitan Theatre hosts special engagement of “Christopher Robin”

There are many advantages to living in Southern California if you’re a Disney fan. You’re close to Disneyland, there’s the history of Walt Disney in Hollywood, and the beautiful Disney owned movie palace smack dab in the middle of Hollywood. We’re talking, of course, about the El Capitan Theatre which plays host to Disney’s myriad movie productions.

Soon Hollywood’s legendary El Capitan Theatre will present a special engagement of Disney’s “Christopher Robin” from August 3 – August 26, 2018. Tickets are now on sale at, by calling 1-800-DISNEY6 and at The El Capitan Theatre box office.

“We are thrilled to re-visit the Hundred Acre Wood with Disney’s ‘Christopher Robin’ and the best place to begin the journey is none other than The El Capitan Theatre,” said Ed Collins, General Manager of The El Capitan Theatre. “Through August 12, El Capitan Guests will see our display of Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore and Tigger stuffed animals used in the making of the movie. These ‘stuffies’ – as they were affectionately referred to on set – were created using manufacturing processes that would have existed in the 1920s when the original toys were made.”

Collins continued, “El Capitan Guests can even be the first to see the movie and receive an exclusive poster by attending our Special Opening Night on Thursday, August 2 at 6:00pm.”

From August 2 through August 5, and August 11 and 12, guests of the theatre will be entertained by The Side Street Strutters Jazz Band from Disneyland ahead of the show.

Tickets to The Special Opening Night are $30 each and include a Reserved Seat, Popcorn and 20 oz Bottled Drink and Exclusive Poster.
