"Inside Out" at the El Capitan Theater - Disney•Pixar Explores What Goes on Inside Your Head

Hollywood’s legendary El Capitan Theatre presents a special engagement of Disney•Pixar’s “Inside Out” now through August 19, 2015. Before the movie, El Capitan guests will experience “Music of Light,” an all-new, immersive stage show, featuring breathtaking illuminations created by 3D Live, which intertwine with live dancers choreographed by Dave Scott, resident choreographer on “So You Think You Can Dance.”
“Five of the characters of ‘Inside Out’—Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger and Disgust—are Emotions,” said Scott. “For me, being able to interpret emotion through dance live on stage is a brilliant idea. When I started working on this, I was so excited to think of dance styles that can be inspired by these emotions—hip hop, krump and breakdancing are all part of this show. We even have a dancer who specializes in aerial work who can express an ecstastic emotion.”

The El Capitan has a long history of creating spectacular live stage shows like “Music of Light” to complement the release of a new movie for unforgettable entertainment experiences. “With ‘Inside Out,’ we have an opportunity to now use a new technology from a company called 3D Live in which live dancers can dance among a 3D landscape from an LED-lit movie-sized backdrop,” said James Wood, operations and stage production for The El Capitan Theatre. “It’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before!”

“Nothing like you’ve ever seen before,” is not an understatement. As I sat in the audience watching the show with my 3D glasses, I was amazed!  A very talented group of dancers moved among the objects as if the objects were really there.  They weren’t wearing the 3D glasses, so they didn’t see what we saw.  While the center seats would have been a better view of the show even sitting on the side you still got the wonder of it.
Each screening also includes Disney•Pixar’s new short “LAVA,” a musical love story that takes place over millions of years. “LAVA” was so adorable.  A perfect way to use a song to tell a story.  From start to finish it was captivating.  I don’t want to give away the ending, but it lives up to the Disney•Pixar name!

Do you ever look at someone and wonder what is going on inside their head? Disney•Pixar’s original new film “Inside Out” ventures inside the mind to find out. 

Based in Headquarters, the control center inside 11-year-old Riley’s mind, five Emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy (voice of Amy Poehler), whose mission is to make sure Riley stays happy. Fear (voice of Bill Hader) heads up safety, Anger (voice of Lewis Black) ensures all is fair and Disgust (voice of Mindy Kaling) prevents Riley from getting poisoned—both physically and socially. Sadness (voice of Phyllis Smith) isn’t exactly sure what her role is, and frankly, neither is anyone else.  

When Riley's family relocates to a scary new city, the Emotions are on the job, eager to help guide her through the difficult transition. But when Joy and Sadness are inadvertently swept into the far reaches of Riley’s mind—taking some of her core memories with them—Fear, Anger and Disgust are left reluctantly in charge. Joy and Sadness must venture through unfamiliar places—Long Term Memory, Imagination Land, Abstract Thought and Dream Productions—in a desperate effort to get back to Headquarters, and Riley.

Directed by Academy Award® winner Pete Docter ("Monsters, Inc.", "Up"), produced by Jonas Rivera, p.g.a. ("Up") and featuring an original score by Michael Giacchino ("The Incredibles," "Ratatouille," "Up"), Disney•Pixar's "Inside Out" opened in theaters on June 19, 2015.

“Inside Out” is presented at The El Capitan in Dolby Vision™ and Dolby Atmos™. It is the first animated feature projected in the new Dolby Vision, and The El Capitan is among a handful of theatres in the world and the only theatre in the west coast projecting the film with this new technology. Dolby Vision revolutionizes the viewing experience using extended dynamic range 4k laser projection that captivates your senses with astonishing brightness, incomparable contrast, and brilliant color you can feel.  In addition, Dolby Atmos®™ moves audio around the theatre, even overhead, with amazing richness and depth to transport audiences into the movie. “Dolby Vision™ -- with its powerful new laser projectors – allows us to present images with unsurpassed color and contrast – in fact, 500 times the contrast,” said Michael Kern, VP event production & technical services. “It truly delivers images dramtically richer, brighter and darker. All of this gives the image for ‘Inside Out’ a finer sense of dimension, natural depth, shading and fine details. With Dolby Vision, filmmakers can now tell their stories the way they intended to by capturing exact levels of brightness and color and delivering them to our audience, unleashing a power of color and light that delivers a sensory experience found nowhere else, except in a Dolby Vision theatre. Stories are no longer just seen, they are felt.”
 Daily showtimes are 10 a.m., 1 p.m., 4 p.m., 7 p.m. and a 9:55 p.m. screening on opening weekend and Fridays and Saturdays. Tickets are on sale now, and available at the El Capitan Theatre (6838 Hollywood Blvd.), online, or by calling 1-800-DISNEY6. Special group rates for parties of 20 or more are available by calling 1-818-845-3110. Showtimes are subject to change.
The El Capitan Theatre will also host a very special Tiny Tot Tuesday every Tuesday during the run of “Inside Out” at  10 a.m. During these special screenings, parents and small children may enjoy the movie in a tot-friendly way—with lights dimmed rather than out and reduced sound levels.
