Disney and Pixar’s new animated feature “Turning Red” comes to the big screen at Hollywood’s El Capitan Theatre as a Southern California exclusive during a limited one-week engagement March 11 through March 17.

Guests can attend a “Turning Red” Opening Night Fan Event on March 11 at 7:00pm for $40. Each ticket includes a souvenir credential, reversible bucket cap, notebook and 64oz popcorn tub.

Disney and Pixar’s “Turning Red” introduces Mei Lee (voice of Rosalie Chiang), a confident, dorky 13-year-old torn between staying her mother’s dutiful daughter and the chaos of adolescence. Her protective, if not slightly overbearing mother, Ming (voice of Sandra Oh), is never far from her daughter—an unfortunate reality for the teenager. And as if changes to her interests, relationships and body weren’t enough, whenever she gets too excited (which is practically ALWAYS), she “poofs” into a giant red panda! Directed by Academy Award® winner Domee Shi (Pixar short “Bao”) and produced by Lindsey Collins.

During each show throughout the week, guests are encouraged to arrive early and let loose at the Panda-Monium Dance Party inside the theatre. Audience members can dance and jam to some tunes at their seats with an upbeat, on-stage host while enjoying a fun mix of music.
