News   3D Screenings of "Tangled" to Play El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood; Donna Murphy Stars
 
Hollywood's historic El Capitan Theatre has announced a special engagement of Disney's upcoming animated feature "Tangled," Nov. 24-Dec. 16.

The computer-animated film will be screened in Disney Digital 3D. A live, new musical revue, featuring the onstage debuts of the film's lead characters, Rapunzel and Flynn, as well as all the classic Disney characters, will take place before every show.

Guests will also be able to take part in a "Tea Party with Rapunzel" in the theatre's lower lounge on select days (reservations required), and will receive a Collector's Coin, sponsored by Goldline International, that commemorates the debut of "Tangled," which is Disney's 50th animated film.

The film, a retelling of the Rapunzel fairy tale, will screen daily at 10 AM, 1 PM, 4 PM, 7 PM and 9:30 PM.

“When the kingdom’s most wanted—and most charming—bandit Flynn Rider hides out in a mysterious tower, he’s taken hostage by Rapunzel, a beautiful and feisty tower-bound teen with 70 feet of magical, golden hair,” according to previous film notes. “Flynn’s curious captor, who’s looking for her ticket out of the tower where she’s been locked away for years, strikes a deal with the handsome thief and the unlikely duo sets off on an action-packed escapade, complete with a super-cop horse, an over-protective chameleon and a gruff gang of pub thugs.”

Set for a late November release, the movie boasts the vocal talents of Mandy Moore as Rapunzel, Zachary Levi as Flynn and two-time Tony Award winner Donna Murphy as Madame Gothel, the villainess who keeps Rapunzel locked away. The film features songs by composer Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater. Menken (Leap of Faith, Little Shop of Horrors, A Christmas Carol) has a long history with Disney, including the stage and screen versions of Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid. Slater (newyorkers) has collaborated with Menken on The Little Mermaid and Sister Act.

The El Capitan is located at 6838 Hollywood Blvd. For tickets, call (800) DISNEY6. Special group-rate tickets for parties of 20 or more are available by calling (818) 845-3110.
