Nothing compares to seeing this movie at the El Capitan Theater. The theater is just beautiful and adds to any movie experience. Disney did a great job a few years ago converting TNBC to 3D and this year added 4-D effects (in theater lights,...continued

El Capitan is a beautiful theater. Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my favorite movies so this was a must see event for me. The movie in 3D was a nice improvement and the extra effects were awesome. I was a little disappointed as I was hoping...continued

Great show with fun effects! The staff was helpful and the venue really stunning! We had a party of six and all had a good time. We didn't visit the display room due to large crowds and will have to fit that in next time.

This event was great. My daughter and I had the perfect night out, as we both love NBC. The only gripe I have is that not all areas of the theater felt the 4D effects. We were sitting closer to the back and did not get any snow or feel any air...continued

The 4D additions were lots of fun. Be sure to show up early for general admission. We arrived 30 minutes before the show and almost half the GA seats were already taken. Many groups that came in later had to split up.

Loved this event. To our surprise Danny Elfman from Oingo Boingo who also did the music showed up. The 4d part was so fun for my 4 year old Let it snow.

This was fun! It's always a little hard taking an old movie and converting it to 3D, though, so some parts were a bit fuzzy, and the "4D sensory effects" were a bit uninspired, but they still added a fun element to the movie! I would recommend...continued

The only place to see Nightmare Before Christmas 3D is at the El Capitan! This is a classic film and it has been expertly converted to 3D. The 4D effects are fun and allow the audience to participate in this lively story. This is a great venue and...continued

This is MANDATORY for ANYONE who likes Halloween. The decorations within the El Capitan are fantastic, but it's what they do with the film that's truly inspiring. The 3D work is wonderful, whirling and choreographed lights support the action on...continued

The movie is a lot of fun in 3D/4D. There's a special excitement in the air because almost everyone there loves the movie and can't wait to see it again on the big screen.

The 4D elements were mainly lights flashing around the theater and a...continued

After 3 years of attempting to watch NBC in 3D, I finally got to experience it @ the El Capitan for the first time! I loved that they gave us little jingle bells to wear on our wrists, which I still have btw and hopefully will wear them for the...continued

Always great to see this film on the big screen! I didn't think the 3D aspects (or the 4D aspects for that matter) added much to my movie-watching experience, but it was good. I particularly enjoyed the scents added to the theatre during the...continued

This was an incredible show, loved every minute of it. The theatre is beautiful and the film looked great on the big screen. The 4D effects made it even better.

This ROCKED.
The theatre was done up BEAUTIFULLY. And now, on TOP of the 3D, they've added light effects, fog, snow and even the scents of Christmas for God's sakes. And they've added a TON of opportunities for the audience to interact in...continued

Good time for the money. Fun show, and the 4D effects was an exciting addition. Everything from sight to smell to snow!
