The Muppets at El Capitan Theater

Recently I went to see The Muppets at El Capitan Theater.  I wanted to see the movie there especially after I'd seen that the theater played a bit of a role in the film when I watched it the first time.  The theater is located in a popular area on Hollywood Blvd. and is right across the street from Hollywood/Highland and Mann's Chinese Theater. El Capitan is a gorgeous theater and a fun place to see Disney movies.

Plus before every movie you get to enjoy Disney music played on an organ.

In addition to the organ music, the movie usually includes something before and/or after the movie!  The Muppets had both!  Before The Muppets film started, Miss Piggy and Kermit appeared on stage for a holiday sing-along!  It was so much fun to see them on stage!

I was a little disappointed because everyone was given bells before the movie.  They were for the sing-along and it was fun for everyone to jingle their bells to the music but for me I couldn't get past the fact that people were probably not going to remember to put away their bells during the movie.  Sure enough there was the faint sound of bells during the entire film.  I was able to ignore it though and still had a great time!

It was awesome watching the movie at El Capitan Theater and I enjoyed the film just as much as the first time.  After the movie we went downstairs to check out the mini exhibit.  They had Miss Piggy's movie wardrobe, her dressing room, Kermit's office, and other movie props from the film!

After this we went over to Disney's Soda Fountain and Studio Store!  Check out my next post for more!


  1. We FINALLY got to see the movie this weekend and LOVED it. We immediately went out to get the soundtrack and have been singing "Life's a Happy Song" ever since! ;)We decided to be cheap and saw it elsewhere so I'm really glad you shared pictures of what it was like at the El Cap. I love seeing familiar places in films. :)

  2. I really want to see it again at the El Cap now that I know it's the "Muppet Theater." And I want to get the special drink at the soda fountain right now ... mmm! Can't wait for part 2!

  3. Hope- so glad you were able to see it! So much fun! I love that song too :) Mindy- the special at the soda fountain was the Rainbow Connection sundae and it was yummy! :) I hope you get to try it!
