Earth Day and 'African Cats'
Happy Earth Day!
As I'm contemplating child-safe Easter egg dyes, I'd also like to point out an adorable-looking Disneynature film that arrived at the El Capitan Theatre today -- "African Cats."
Narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, this nature documentary, from the same studio that made "Oceans" and "Earth" (the latter of which we saw at the El Cap two years ago), follows lion and cheetah families as they defend their newborns and watch as their little ones grow into strong, determined adults.
The showings at the El Capitan (April 22-May 16) will also feature a live presentation of captive-born wild animals from the Wildlife Learning Center.
On April 26 at 10 a.m., the theater will also host "Tiny Tot Tuesday," in which the film will be played at reduced sound levels and the lights will be dimmed instead of completely dark.
An added bonus? For each person who purchases a ticket to see "African Cats" during its opening week (April 22-28) Disneynature will make a donation to help protect lions and cheetahs in the Savannah.
Show times: 10 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 3:45 p.m., 7 p.m., 9:35 p.m.
