1. El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, CA

If you're a fan of Walt Disney movies, you might want to watch them in El Capitan Theatre. El Capital Theatre was a playhouse turned movie house now owned by the Walt Disney Company. 

Did you know that some of your Disney movie favorites had their premier night at the El Capitan Theatre? When El Capitan reopened in 1991, they featured The Rocketeer, a superhero movie that starred Bill Campbell and Jennifer Connelly. Toy Story also had its premier night on November 18, 1995 at the El Capitan Theatre. They also rented the next-door Masonic Convention Hall (now El Capitan Theatre) and turned it into a pop-up theme park named "Totally Toy Story"to further promote the movie.

After shows, patrons are treated to walk-through prop and costume showcases in the basement of El Capitan.

3. Paramount Drive-In Theater in Paramount, CA

Do you remember those romantic scenes in a movie where the boy and girl watches a movie in an open space? That open space is called a drive-in theater. Drive-in theaters are becoming rare these days. Where else can you watch a movie right in the comfort of your own car? After 22 years, Paramount Drive-In Theater returned to business. It features two 75 foot screens, Barco Digital projection, FM radio sound, an expanded food menu, and a clean, safe, and friendly environment.

General admission will cost you $10. This will only give you a one-time entrance. Once you leave the drive-in, you will have to pay to re-enter. Sadly, you can't switch screens. But the best feature of the Paramount Drive-In Theater is that, they operate even on rainy days! So, no excuses to cancel that movie date! :)
