Super cute movie, I had never seen it in 3D so that was exciting. Effects weren't as extra special as I had expected, but still added another dimension to the film (colors, fog, lights). Really enjoyed the movie and the theater! Wish I had known...continued

The decorating and set up is very cool and Exciting.
The 3-D was cool too. But I didn't feel there was enough 4-D action. I was expecting more of A Bugs Life from California Adventure.
So I have to admit I was a little disappointed about that....continued

The El Capitan Theater is wonderful! We could see everything from the general admission seats. I'd definitely do it again.

The El Capitan is such a beautiful theater! My kids and I enjoyed ourselves. The 4D effects added a wonderful element to such a classic film. It was great to see one of my favorite movies of all time in that style. Well worth it!

The four stars are for the event. It was really nice to see one of my favorite holiday movies up on the big screen. The 3-D effects didn't add too much to the experience, and the "4-D" part consisted of a little fog, some wind, some lights, and a...continued

The only downside, I thought there would have been a little more special effects for the balcony area. Also, they reserved so many seats in the center to extract an additional $15. It was very good, but for those that had to sit in the balcony...continued

The show was great! I took my partner, my sister and my nephew. They also loved the movie with 3D and added sensory effects. The look on my 3 yr old nephew's face of excitement and happiness was priceless! Thank You

This was an excellent way to see this movie. The 4D element consisted of festive lighting during appropriate scenes, fog and snow. It really brought the movie to life. Lots of fun!

This was a great show. My eight year old son loved it. It is always fun to see a movie at the El Capitan. The organist is great. The special effects that went along with the movie made it a great show.
I definetly recommend the show.

This was the second time I've seen The Nightmare Before Christmas at El Capitan. It was a great experience both times, you interact with the movie and the seats are great. It is first come first serve basis so be there early! The only bad thing I...continued

Very pleasant experience. I thought I was going to miss it because some unexpected issues came up and then the traffic was awful. Not to mention the light to cross the street from the parking structure took forever. But once we got to the window...continued

What a wonderful night! Getting to see a classic movie that I've loved since I was a kid in 4D for the first time was so much fun. Yes, the special effects such as the gingerbread smell, the snow, the fog, and the lights were spectacular and fun,...continued

What Goldstar does not inform you in the description is that these discounted tickets are only for seats on the sides of the theater. The entire center section is "VIP seating" for $10 more, with specific seat assignments--to upgrade, you had to...continued

A great movie! The lighting effects were very cool. The fog was a nice touch too. We sat in the balcony so we did not get to see the snow. The fog and snow machine are a bit loud, but not so much that you can't hear the movie. Plus, those two...continued
