The El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood presents Disney’s Cruella – Kicking off with Opening Night Fan Event, May 27, 2021, with shows through June 16th.

The Movies LA Life and Style

Hollywood, Calif. – Be among the first to see Disney’s Cruella! Each Opening Night Fan Event ticket includes reserved seating, “Cruella” themed reusable tote bag, red and white box of popcorn, 20 oz. bottled drink, Red Vines and Opening Night Fan Event Souvenir Credential with lanyard. Tickets for this special screening are $40.00 per person.

Academy Award® winner Emma Stone (“La La Land”) stars in Disney’s “Cruella,” an all-new live action feature film about the rebellious early days of one of cinemas most notorious – and notoriously fashionable – villains, the legendary Cruella de Vil. “Cruella,” which is set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, follows a young grifter named Estella, a clever and creative girl determined to make a name for herself with her designs. She befriends a pair of young thieves who appreciate her appetite for mischief, and together they are able to build a life for themselves on the London streets.

One day, Estella’s flair for fashion catches the eye of the Baroness von Hellman, a fashion legend who is devastatingly chic and terrifyingly haute, played by two-time Oscar® winner Emma Thompson (“Howards End,” “Sense and Sensibility”). But their relationship sets in motion a course of events and revelations that will cause Estella to embrace her wicked side and become the raucous, fashionable and revenge-bent Cruella. “Cruella” stars Emma Stone, Emma Thompson, Joel Fry, Paul Walter Hauser, Emily Beecham, Kirby Howell-Baptiste and Mark Strong.

The film is directed by Craig Gillespie, with screenplay by Dana Fox and Tony McNamara, story by Aline Brosh McKenna and Kelly Marcel & Steve Zissis, based upon the novel “The One Hundred and One Dalmatians” by Dodie Smith. “Cruella” is produced by Andrew Gunn, Marc Platt and Kristin Burr, p.g.a., with Emma Stone, Michelle Wright, Jared LeBoff and Glenn Close serving as executive producers.

All seats for this engagement are reserved:  Mon. – Thurs.: $20 Adult, $16 Child (3-11)/Senior(60+), and Fri. – Sun.: $24 Adult, $20 Child (3-11)/Senior(60+)
