KODAK PIT STOP CHALLENGE BEFORE EVERY PERFORMANCE
with a real pit crew LIVE on stage in a fun and interactive show
JUNE 9TH TO JULY 4TH
Hollywood's legendary El Capitan Theatre will rev up the action during its special engagement of Disney/Pixar's exciting new computer-animated movie “CARS” with the “Kodak Pit Stop Challenge,” featuring a real pit crew - live on stage - in a fun and interactive show at every performance from June 9th to July 4th, it was announced today by Lylle Breier, senior vice president of worldwide special events for Buena Vista Picture Distribution. The El Capitan Theatre is located at 6838 Hollywood Blvd.
Before every movie, the audience will get to watch a real professional pit crew as they race against the clock to get their car back into the race, in a not-to-be-missed, heart pounding show. The crew will be joined by audience members, who will work with them onstage. Providing the play-by-play - along with great music and giveaways - will be the El Capitan DJ. The pit crew is from PIT Instruction and Training, the stock car industry leader in preparing professional over-the-wall pit crews.
Commenting on the announcement, Breier said, “Buckle up and hold onto your seats! The entire event promises to be big fun for the whole family. Guests are in for a treat as we begin our presentation of the new Disney/Pixar 'CARS' with a show that will literally put our audience into track excitement as they watch the crew trying to beat time and get their car up, running and back in competition. 'CARS' is another amazing film from Pixar and John Lasseter. This is the perfect entertainment to get the summer off to the right start.”
To further add to the fun, Disney's Soda Fountain and Studio Store (located next door to the theatre) will be offering the special Pit Stop Sundae. Refuel your engines with two scoops of rocky road ice cream, rich hot fudge, and an Oreo® spare tire, topped off with whipped cream, car sprinkles, and a cherry. After enjoying the sundae, patrons get to keep the collectable bowl.
Tickets for this special engagement of “CARS” can be purchased at the El Capitan box office, online at www.elcapitantickets.com, or by calling 1-800-DISNEY6. Special group rates are available for parties of 20 or more.
After taking moviegoers magically into the realm of toys, bugs, monsters, fish, and superheroes, the masterful storytellers and technical wizards at Pixar Animation Studios (“The Incredibles,” “Finding Nemo,” “Monsters Inc.), and Academy Award - winning director John Lasseter (“Toy Story,” “Toy Story 2,” “A Bug's Life”), hit the road with a fast-paced comedy adventure set inside the world of cars. Disney/Pixar's “CARS” is a high octane delight for moviegoers of all ages, fueled with plenty of humor, action, heartfelt drama, and amazing new technical feats.
Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson), a hotshot race car driven to succeed, discovers that life is about the journey, not the finish line, when he finds himself unexpectedly detoured in the sleepy Route 66 town of Radiator Springs. On route across the country to the big Piston Cup Championship in California to compete against two seasoned pros, McQueen gets to know the town's offbeat characters - including Doc Hudson (voiced by Paul Newman), Sally (a snazzy 2002 Porsche voiced by Bonnie Hunt) and Mater (a rusty but trusty truck voiced by Larry the Cable Guy) - who help him realize that there are more important things than trophies, fame and sponsorship.
The all-star vocal cast also included free-wheeling performances by Tony Shalhoub, Michael Keaton, Cheech Martin, George Carlin, Katherine Helmond, and John Ratzenberger. Delivering more fun and authenticity to the cast for “CARS” are vocal performances from some of the all-time greatest names for the racing world including the legendary Richard Petty, plus “drive-on” roles by Mario Andretti, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Darrell Waltrip (who holds the record for five-wins at the NASCAR Coca Cola 600), and Michael Schumacher, the ace German Formula 1 racing Legend who is a seven-times world champion, and is widely considered to be the best grand Prix racing driver of all-times.
