The El Capitan Theatre Offers Two Frightfully Fun Films This Halloween

Every Halloween the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, California puts on a special presentation of The Nightmare Before Christmas. The past few years they’ve added a limited run of Hocus Pocus as well. Get in the Halloween spirit this Fall with a trip to the El Capitan.


The Nightmare Before Christmas 4D

Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas has been a holiday hit since it’s release in 1993. The film follows Jack Skellington, the Halloween Town hero, as he attempts to switch careers from spooking kids as the Pumpkin King, to bringing them cheer as Sandy Claws. Unfortunately for Jack, he ignores the warnings of Sally (his secret admirer) and kidnaps Santa Claus to take his place.

The El Capitan’s 4D spectacular is the only event of its kind. Guests can enjoy the film for the first or fiftieth time with the addition of special effects. The El Capitan brings this classic animated film to life in a unique and thrilling way. Tickets are available for purchase online at the El Capitan website or in person at the box office. The movie will run from October 25th until October 31st. All seats are reserved, and do sell out quickly. VIP tickets cost $23 and include popcorn and a drink. Regular seating costs $14 per person.


Hocus Pocus

If you’ve never seen Hocus Pocus it’s not too late to make this classic part of your holiday tradition. Hocus Pocus tells the story of the Sanderson sisters, three 17th Century witches who return from Salem to get revenge on humankind after their 300 year imprisonment. They’re looking for children to help them reclaim their youth, and help them stay alive. To survive they’ll need to take on three determined kids and a talking cat. The movie will run at the El Capitan from October 21st through the 23rd. You can purchase tickets online or at the box office.

There are many places to park around the theater, but the most affordable is located in the Hollywood and Highland complex. With validation from the El Capitan, parking will cost you just $2. In comparison, the private parking lot located directly behind the El Capitan costs $20 to park.
