The LAHTF is especially honored to present All About the El Capitan. This immersive tour will take you from the basement to the booth. Trained docents will lead you backstage and behind the footlights, where technicians operate sophisticated performance systems to make the live shows come alive. The tour continues under stage where the performers prepare. There are some amazing special stage effects to see, as well. All About the El Capitan is an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of America’s most successful single screen theatre. Don’t miss it!
Before the tour begins, theatre historian Ed Kelsey will present a photographic history of the El Capitan – first as a legit house then its transformation into the Paramount. Ed Collins, El Capitan Executive Director, will pick up the story from the beginning of the Walt Disney Company’s restoration and operation of the theatre. El Capitan organist, Rob Richards, will present a demonstration of the Mighty Wurlitzer.
Doors open at 7:45 am. Presentation and tour begin at 8:00 am. Advance reservations are strongly recommended.
