Doubloon Or Nothing
Disney's discovered that "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" paid off so nice that they're distributing it twice. The film will screen at the Disney-owned El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood from January 13th through the 30th.
On Thursday, January 13th at 7:00 PM there will be a filmmaker panel discussion that will focus on the production, screenplay, and behind-the-scenes aspects. Noted film historian/author Frank Thompson will lead the panel, which will include screenwriters Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, composer Klaus Badelt, actor Lee Arenberg (who played the pirate Pintel and is set to reprise that role in the sequel), second unit director Bruce Hendricks, and Disney Studios visual effects senior vice president Art Repola.
Moviegoers who come dressed in pirate garb will receive a free
commemorative button, and are invited to compete in a costume contest that will be held at every show.
"Pirates of the Caribbean" will be projected digitally throughout the engagement at the El Capitan with daily shows at 12:30 pm, 4:00 pm, 7:15 pm, and 10:30 pm. Tickets can be purchased at the box office, by calling 1-800-DISNEY6, or on line here.
