One of the few aspects of living in the Los Angeles area that I miss are the terrific events hosted by the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood. Next up is Disneynature’s “EARTH” for a limited engagement. The gala premiere was held there just the other night.
The El Capitan engagement will run from April 22nd through May 26th, and will also feature a live stage show called “Animals From Around the World,” spotlighting wildlife experts sharing the unique characteristics of exotic animals in their care.
Plus, for every moviegoer who buys a ticket to the opening week of the movie, Disneynature will plant a tree on their behalf in the Atlantic Rainforest in Brazil. And, exclusively, during the run at the El Capitan, audiences will have a chance to see the new 4000-square-foot painting inspired by the film, “EARTH,” and painted by Wyland, the world’s best-loved environmental artist. Wyland is world renowned for his monumental Whaling Wall mural project (viewed by an estimated 1 billion people each year), his activities through the Wyland Foundation, and for being a leading advocate for marine resource conservation.
The El Capitan is also teaming up with Southern California Edison and Greenlite Lighting Corporation to “CHANGE the world” by providing energy efficient CFL lightbulbs for home use. For a minimum donation of 25 cents, guests will receive a CFL bulb which uses 75% less energy than standard bulbs.
Tickets are available at the El Capitan Theatre box office (6838 Hollywood Blvd.), on line at www.elcapitantickets.com, or by calling 1-800-DISNEY6
