Step into Hollywood's glittering past at the legendary El Capitan Theatre, which made its debut on May 3, 1926, as "Hollywood's First Home of Spoken Drama." This grand theater has been restored to its original elegance, boasting a Spanish Colonial exterior and a colorful and lavish East Indian interior designed by San Francisco architect G. Albert Lansburgh.
The El Capitan Theatre has undergone a museum-grade renovation. This includes the stage, which has been restored to its original 1926 legitimate-theater dimensions, a newly installed high-speed lift center stage, lights, recently remodeled dressing rooms, and state-of-the-art special effects. The theater offers 1,000 seats and a Dolby SR-D audio system.
