That's why I was so excited that the 1998 Disney film was coming to Hollywood's El Capitan Theatre. (It's playing through March 6.) CC and I gladly accepted an invitation to go and take a look. As expected, it was magical.
Of course we had to brave the packed stretch of Hollywood Boulevard that's overflowing with bleachers for this weekend's Oscars. There were tons of people out, passing through the pre-award show madness.
Once we got inside, I remembered just how amazing the theater is for kids—and adults, too. The organist was playing classic Disney songs. Kids and their parents were filing in, carrying popcorn and drinks, and we were even greeted by an usher from Berlin! (CC got to practice a few words.)

The movie itself, about a young woman in China who must pretend to be a man to fight in the army against the Huns, is inspiring and a great source of girl-power inspiration for CC. I love that Mulan was so courageous and fought for what she believed in—making mistakes along the way, sure, but kicking some serious Hun bum.
Take a look, if you're looking for a fun outing with the kiddos. What I especially loved was that CC and I could get some good mother-daughter time in over the weekend. That's become a little rarer these days, and I don't want her to forget just how much I love being with her.
