El Capitan Theatre moviegoers will kick off holiday celebrations early with an exclusive advance engagement of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen, beginning five days before the film’s nationwide release. El Capitan is frozen over this holiday season, welcoming guests into a snow-covered wonderlandcomplete with ice-capped opera boxes and a flurry of snowflakes. Frozen showings, which will run Nov. 22, 2013, to Jan. 5, 2014, will be preceded by ice carving performance artists on stage, as well as Frozen characters Anna and Elsa in their first live-on-stage appearances.
“The whole company is incredibly excited about ‘Frozen’ and can’t wait to share it with audiences this Thanksgiving,” said Dave Hollis, executive vice president, theatrical distribution, The Walt Disney Studios. “We know that fans come to El Capitan to have a special Disney experience, and we are thrilled to give our guests there the opportunity to be among the first in the world to see this stunning new animated adventure.”
